I recently purchased a used 15 gallon tank that a guy was using with salt water. Any special procedures to clean it before I use it?

If you fill it up with 14 gallons of water and add a gallon of distilled white vinegar, and you can either let it sit like that for a couple hours or if it has equipment you can run it through everything for a few hours. Then you can scrub off the salt creep and whatever coralline algae residue with a magic eraser and a toothbrush and it will look good as new :)
Providing of course the previous owner took care of it.

Edit: Rinse thoroughly!!
