It's not hard to seal a tank... But one that big will take a while. you will need some aquarium silicone, and a round and smooth utensil like a putty knife.

Well, that seems like an OK deal, but I would try to haggle them down. Sealing a tank that big takes a good amount of time, effort, and money.
