Re-commissioning an out of service tNn

This 30 gal tank was out of service for over 2 years. Aside from checking for leaks/resealing, what do I need to do to make it usable for invertebrates again? Is there a best practice for cleaning this up? Click image for larger version

Late to answer but try vinegar soaked rags to remove the white crusty residue. It may or may not work.
