changing from freshwater to saltwater

I just today bought a 29 gallon biocube on craigslist. The man i bought it from used it as a saltwater aquarium, I want to make it a freshwater aquarium. Will this jack up the water levels?

Give the tank a good cleaning with a vinegar/water solution, and rinse well.

Not sure if you are also meaning non-tank stuff; obviously the substrate and filter media should be discarded (may be unwanted "things" anyway), and any decor will not likely be suitable.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
