Looks like a razor-blade glass scraper and some time will get all that paint/glue off. The tape I would definitely remove, might be hiding a big crack or something.

On the sand/gravel thing I'd just measure the depth inside the tank to what I want. If you're gonna have live plants, 2-3 inches sounds about right. make sure you really wash the sand though. Otherwise you will have cludy water every time a fish stirs it up. Good luck, seems like you got a good deal. Oh yeah, for the top look for a hood at the local 2nd hand store or in the paper. A hood with a light would really spif it up.

i got the glue off. the paint isnt a big deal i dont think im going to worry about it

i can get a 44 LB bag of play sand for like 8$ so yeah lol
but currently im unemployed so i have no money to spend on anything lol
i want to get the sand before winter though since itll be really cold and cleaning out the sand outside in the winter is gunna suck
i have a thread subscribed with a nice detailed tutorial on cleaning the sand too :)

yeah im probably going to do 2-3 inches i want to get plants make it nice and pretty for my loaches :)

He's certainly a cute little guy. Apparently they max out at about 8 inches, with males being even smaller? They sound like a much better option than the familiar yet much larger red-eared sliders that are so common.
