    Reptile tanks are usually not safe for use as a fish aquarium. Most likely the glass is too thin and the seals are left wanting.

    Hi I bought a used tank as well, and I cleaned the inside with vinegar and water and then rinsed it out very good. The fish equipment I cleaned with a bleach solution and also rinsed and dried!
    Hope this helps!!!

    I strongly second this. Don’t use reptile tanks as aquariums.
