Tank conversion

Hello everyone, just a quick question. I got ahold of another 55 gallon for free that has housed a bearded dragon and I wanted to use it as a fish tank? Are there any risks? Also I just filled the tank for a leak test and it holding water...no leaks.

Clean it real good. I would use a bleach mix. Should be good to go. My 10 gallon had a lizard in it, got it for free. I bleached it with a bleach and scalding hot water mix, rinsed it with hot water and let it air dry. Gave it a final good rinsing with hot water and let it air dry. I am using it as a shrimp tank at the moment. I started with a dozen or so rcs and now have lord only knows how many and no problems.
