I would be EXTREMELY leery about putting a 300 anywhere other than ground floor. Without proper reinforcement specifically under the aquarium, it is just inviting a MAJOR disaster. We are talking in the 4000lbs (2 ton) range after water, rocks, equipment, and the tank itself. I had a 300 on the ground floor with a steel stand (weighed ~1000lbs) and it put dents in the concrete. I would sure not want that in a highrise!
