You're asking how much your 240 L tank will weigh when full? I'd estimate the # kilograms +20%... So 240kg + 48kg = 288 kg, or round up to 300kg.
I realize that's overstated, but I'd personally rather have an overbuilt support than an underbuilt one.
Good luck, Eric

Personally, I would want te be cvertain the underleying can carry 400 kg, without any problem. Do remember, glas does not bend, but wood does. Therefore, if the wood bends, your tank could start leaking
I have a tank myself on a cupboard, it contains some 300 l. The front of the cupboard does look capable of carrying weight, but the back does not. Therefore I got myself a few pieces of hardwoord, and put a few strips of it in the cupboard, carrying the weight. I also added a few feet (not length, but support to the ground). The tank has been standing there for 5 years or more now.
