A tank that size though an ATO will be your best bet if going topless.. I'm pretty sure you could get a complete system for right around $120 which will hold a stable salinity and also give you a new means of dosing.

Thanks buddy btw I know many are suggesting glass lids..I respectfully disagree. The glass will filter your light and the evap droplets that form on the underside will block even more. The leds are dimmable so I'm sure you can crank them up to get past this but id try to avoid it. I go through close to a gallon a day evap on my tank. I know you need a top tho for your cat. Look into the brs netting. It's made a certain way so it does not block light and you can build a Frame at Lowes. We can order it together because I plan on building one as well. One order should be enough for us both

I'm assuming you mean the screen tops? Or the ATO?
