How thick does my stainless steel table top need to be?

I need to construct a table that will hold a water tank. The filled tank will weigh up to 1300 pounds. I have the table leg frames worked out to hold 2500 pounds so no worries there. They are just a 28″ x 34″ rectangle. The table top will be 36″ x 48″. There will be no motion to account for nor any rapid changes in the weight. So my question is how thick does the stainless steel table top need to be to safely bear 1300 pounds?
