I would contact the seller and see what meds, especially copper based, they used in the tank. Otherwise that is a great deal.

Is this a HOB style overflow? I'm guessing it is if the tank is not drilled. Drilling a tank is a task. Believe me I know. Drilling the bottom of the tank is a risk. Is it tempered glass???? If it is there should be a sticker on the bottom that says so and also will tell you not to drill it. If you don't know for sure I would not drill the bottom!
