It very much depends. The water in a 400L tank will weight 400kg or 880lbs. When you add the glass, gravel, lighting etc you are looking at over half a ton of weight. Whatever it is on it will need to be very sturdy - not just for the fish and cost sake but also because if it falls it could easily kill anyone caught in its path!
I built a unit out of three 400mm kitchen units, and 2" square posts for a 450L tank, however it was wedges and bolted between two concrete walls so had nowhere to go.
You can custom built cabinets or get them made for you from specialists at not absurd prices - probably worth considering.
