saltwater to freshwater requires extensive cleaning i believe. However its do-able. As for equipment, i wuld ask for brand and age. Although the 150 is already an excellent deal for a tank with stand, i spent over 200 buying my 46 from petsmart with stand, its good to know what your getting in advance and knowing what oyu may need to spend more moeny on to replace. For example, the light could be too small for the tank and restrict you from buying certain plants, or the bulbs in the light are worn out and need to be replaced, or the fixture itself may burn out if its over 6 or 7 years old, etc.
I don't know how much your willing to spend but if you had to rebuy equipment, it will add up really quick. The stuff i needed for my tank was easily twice as much as what i spent on just the tank and stand.
