Just got a new 25g :D:D One question---is it safe?

I just got a 25g for free off of freecycle. I'm pretty excited!

However, the person I am getting it from said he has used it for bearded dragons, turtles, AND fish. All at separate times of course.

I'm worried about the reptile use this tank has seen. Will that have any affect on fish I put in it?
Will a good cleaning rid it of any bacteria? (whats the best method to do so?)
It's pretty nasty inside. Looks like it's been sitting outside for a while.

I really hope I can use this tank, I've been waiting to upgrade my 10g for some time now. :D

Thanks for the help everyone!

I've used tanks for fish and reptiles at different times. A good cleaning and it should be good to go! May want to make sure it doesn't leak though.

Okay, good. I figured I would be able to use it, but I just wanted to double check. He said he used it last for fish and that it is water tight. I'll check that though.

So how should I go about cleaning this thing? Vinegar and hot water?
