i found a really good deal on a 75 gallon tank with stand, hood, lights, canister filter, rocks, and all sorts of accesories...all for $375 (good deal??)...the only problem is ...that is was a saltwater setup...my question is...im pretty sure the tank can be reused if i rinse it really good....but what about the filter?

Yes Im pretty sure it can be switched over. I got my 75 for $220 but the filter needed to be upgraded and it wasnt in the best of shape. I think with the filter you need to get all new media for it and scrub everything with an old toothbrush or something similar. As for the tank I believe you just have to rinse it out really good and probably scrub off any of the coraline algae that grew on the sides while it was running. Good luck with the tank.

Scrub everything down good with clean freshwater and you'll be fine
