ATO on custom 25 gallon tank


I am in the process of setting up a custom 25 gallon rimless tank (24" x 16" x 15.5")

My question is how much evaporation should I expect on a daily or weekly basis. I know environment has a lot to due with this but just curious what others experience.

I ask because I am considering getting the AutoAqua Smart ATO micro, it is only the size of a small coin and could be easily mounted in the back comer of my tank. Should not take away to much from the aquascape as it is so small and the only other thing in my tank would be a glass co2 diffuser and glass pipes.

Does anyone think this would be worth the expense to have this automated on a small tank.

I added one to my cube tank and I really like it. The dimensions of my tank are different (16x16) and different environments can result in different amounts of evaporation, but I think that I lose about one gallon per week. On top of that, I was inconsistent about where I was topping off, which led to a large band of unsightly minerals on the glass.
