Looking at these two diagrams:
2000 Prelude

1993 Prelude


They seem to be different in size and slight differences in the ports for the pump and whatever else. In general they look similar, but not exactly identical. You can always try a test fit if the seller will allow you to.

I have never personally tried it but I would give it a no. The 4th gen tank looks wider and shorter where the 5th gen is skinnier and taller. Would cause clearance issues. Chances are it will cost you a lot less to just find a 4th gen tank at the junk yard. http://www.car-part.com
