The 1:3 ratio will work,just make sure to rinse it well. If you can,soak everything in clean water after you clean it. It will help leech out chemicals and harmful bacteria. Also,check if the tank can even hold water without leaking,and if it leaks most aquarium stores sell aquarium grade silicon. Also,once everything is clean,get some water conditioners like prime and use as directed.After that,get some liquid bacteria like API Stress Zyme and dose as directed. After all this, test the ph and see if the fish you want are ok with the ph you have. Once that is all done, leave the tank to run for a day or two to let the water "settle" with the conditioner and bacteria,then check the temperature and make sure it's compatible. Once this is ALLLL done,then get the fish and acclimate them by leaving the bag floating for 20 mins or so to get the temps the same. Then,slowly replace the water in the bag with water in the aquarium. Once done,put your fish in the tank and enjoy your hard work :) Hope this helps,and good luck.
