Question Buying used tank set-up

I'm moving my two juvenile axolotls from their tiny individual tanks to a 40 gallon tank that I'm purchasing used. I have the option to keep to the water and so on of this already cycled tank. My question is-
Do I need to worry about possible disease/parasites/etc. from using the water and dirty filter from a tank that currently houses fish?
Am I better off just starting over with fresh water, the dirty water from the existing small tanks, and Stability (by Seachem)?
