evaperation for a 65 gallon
what is the average evaperation for a 65 gallon marine tank, also, should i be doing water changes for a cycling tank?

I do not change water during the cycling process. I do think, however, that you need to be testing for pH, alkalinity, and calcium and adjusting accordingly.
Evaporation depends on far to many factors to provide a general rule of thumb. For example, my 54 evaporates more per day than my 180. The 54 has a fan blowing over the sump to cool the aquarium, which leads to more evaporation. And the 180 has a glass lid, which reduces evaporation. You just have to watch your system and learn what is normal based on your aquariums temperature and the humidity of the room.
