Are tanks previously used for salt water shrimp safe?

Would an aquarium that was used for salt water setup then used for land hermit crabs be shrimp safe? Or better not to risk it? This would house high grade CRS so I'm thinking no but wasn't sure.

As long as you get all the residue cleaned out there should be no problem.

You can clean with bleach or vinegar to do a deep clean. Just make sure to give a full rinse.
