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.
whould you suggest i mark the water line on the display and watch it after a couple days and replace that water?
and i am testing, except i need more test equipment, i don't have a calcium tester.
