Wait until you add the lights! >_<'

Are you using a lid on the main tank? That helps to reduce evaporation.

I have a screen top on my 10 gallon because of my cat also. I'm thinking I need to replace the screen with plexiglass. I have to add quite a bit of water every morning. I had plexiglass on my 5 gal before I upgraded and I only had to top off every 3 days.

You need good airflow to help gas exchange. I would rather top off more often than risk a C02 build up.

Not having a top could help keep the water temp lower, but it will still evaporate.
