Can you use an used aquarium that held reptiles? (After cleaning/bleaching)

I see one for $30.00 but I don't want to bring home any weird diseases. Should I have any concerns about this?

If its been bleached, probably not. If you're really worried, let it sit out in the sun for a while. The UV will sterilize it.

Just make sure to rinse it very very well so you don't risk any lingering bleach which could kill your lovely fishie

Depending on size 30 dollars is alot of money for a used aquarium when you can get a 5 to 10 gallon start up kit for that price

Actually it's $20 no accessories. Do you still think it's a bad price? I already have a filter and I figure I can get some plexiglass cut for it until I come across a hood that is cheap.

Depending on size. Walmart has a 5 gallon led for around 26 and a 10 gallon regular bulb for 29. Both come with filers and sample food and conditioner. I have the 5 gallon and really like the adjustable filter

I am wanting to house 3-4 male bettas with dividers so the 20 seems best at least from the cleaning perspective.Only one tank will go over better with members of my household as well.

I dont see why not, if you can fashion a hood and have a proper filter.
Just figure our the dimensions and how much water it can hold.

I would also leak test it first. I know those type of aquariums are really built to hold water. (:
