That part code comes back as an AGM - (Absorbed Glass Mat) - battery, so is perfectly fine for use in a tank. It's sealed, so can be used in any position, rather than a "standard" lead acid battery, which has open vents and would leak if not kept upright. It's also of the deep discharge type, so can handle being run down further than standard batteries.
