Smelly Fresh Water Tank

When we took possession of our Catalina 30 2 weeks ago we found that the freshwater system was still full of red antifreeze from last winter. I promptly drained it, refilled it and drained it again, the tank still has a god awfull smell coming from it and when I took the lid off and looked in the tank the last tiny bit of water that won't get sucked out by the pump is a milky white color. I am planning to get the last bit of water out of there and clean it out with bleach and then try to pump some water with bleach in it through the 2 faucets. Will this work? Anyone have any ideas? Can antifreeze get nasty if it's left in too long?

Thanks for the help
