You are going to be cutting it a little bit close with a regular 15A breaker. Especially considering that one outlet is most likely not the only one drawing current through that particular breaker.
Big tanks call for drastic measures. Most big tank builders will set up an individual breaker for the tank alone. The hassle up front will translate into peace of mind down the road.
