Welcome to the forum!

Alright, so your tank works out to around 13 gallons, with a filter that's good for tanks up to 100 gallons. Yeah, the filter seems like quite a bit of overkill, you may want to look into selling it and buying something a bit smaller (a filter that big could blow the fish around the tank! Unless it has a very good flow control valve?)

Whenever I get a second hand tank, I always scrub it down with white vinegar on a rough washcloth and give it a good rinse with some hot water. If it has a lot of hard water build up (white powdery spots) or dried on algae, you can use a new, clean, sharp razor blade to scrape it off.
