Oceanic tanks

Did Oceanic ever make 96 gallon tanks? I'm about to pull the trigger on an incredible deal on one listed on Craigslist, but want to make sure it's what they're advertising, and not Brand X...The only things listed on Oceanic's site now are their BioCubes.

Here are pics of the tank. It has been sitting outside for 2 months, covered in a tarp. The seller isn't willing to do a fill test, either. I'm wondering if it's worth the money, time, and effort...

Also, is the glass cross-brace at the top a "good" idea?

How much if you don't mind me asking! Could be a great deal, or it could leak and be useless!

What does he say about it? Does he say it holds water? Or is he unsure? Kind of sketchy that he won't do a water test.

The seller's exact words:
"I've only used it for reptiles and I have NO IDEA if it holds water."

When asked to do a fill test, he responded:
"I'm sorry, I am not willing to go through all that. It would be too labor extensive for me. I can't tip this tank empty let alone with water. Re caulking a tank is easy and cheap if it were necessary. "

(But a royal PITA to do, esp on a tank that large)

I have an oceanic 120 and it looks just like that, same wood grain on the trim and same glass center brace, I'd say go for it, if its not cracked worst case would be $8 for a tube of silicone
