While you may be able to get an idea of evaporation, there is no way to accurately calculate expected evaporation. There are too many factors that play into this role. Humidity levels, temperatures and temp fluctuations, ventillation, and even the differences in covering tanks with various different kinds of covers and light fixtures can make a difference. As weather changes, so will evaporation levels.
The best way to avoid property damage due to keeping this stuff is to make sure there is good ventillation and good circulation in the building. Controlling the temp will also help a great deal. Once these things are up and running, you can also monitor the situation and decide whether you need to add dehumidifiers or humidifiers to help with any problems. You will find that different months of the year will change the conditions indoors a great deal because of weather changes.
