fresh to salt

If I am converting a 33 gallon freshwater tank to a salt water tank can I use the same water?
Should I start fresh with clean a clean dsb and water or can I just change the freshwater to saltwater by adding salt? What would be more beneficial? Will using the old freshwater help shorten the cycle time?

Don't tap on the glass, the fish will think you are stupid!!

I would empty the tank and clean it all out with vinegar, or whatever they recomend.
If you don't love what you do, you'd better find something else to love. Otherwise, you don't have a reason for living.
