If you ever buy a used aquarium, here is what usually works very well for me.

The first thing I do after buying a used aquarium is inspect the seam for leaks. Then give it a good scrub with just a soft sponge/paper towel/wash cloth.

The next step is to wipe it down dry.

After that, I usually do a vinegar scrub.

Dry that off afterwards

Next, do a saltwater scrub.

Dry it off once more.

After all of this is done, rinse the tank thoroughly.

You should then proceed to let it air dry....
