    Question Lizard / fish tank??

    Got a question...

    My plated lizard died this morning... i housed him in a 25g Hagen tank. Can i use this tank to house fish? Not SW...but maybe my smaller FW pond fish in the winter? I have heard people say once you use a tank for reptiles it can not be used for anything else... any thoughts?

    people say this because usually lizards scratch the inside of the tank so badly. its both astetics and if they have scratched out the silicone.
    thats my understanding anyway.
