Looks good. If you look on the bottom he's also giving you a bunch of other tanks too. I think it sounds good.

90g Reef
30g Long Frag Tank

I wouldn't ignore the fact that once the tank is all set up (water, glass, stand, rock equipment etc) it's going to be in the neighborhood of 5000 pounds. That's like having a pick up truck parked in your living room. Can your floor support two and a half tons?

I would assume it would, but I wouldn't be against put some 2X4s between the floor joists and the basement floor for extra support.
Also, it looks really tall, I'd double check the height before I bought it. Remember, you'll probably need a few inches of clearance to get the hood on. I'd assume it drops and inch or so once it's in place.
