Back Cover for Nuvo 16?

Does anyone know if they make a cover for the back of the Nuvo 16? The evaporation on this tank happens very quickly and I'm looking for a way to maintain the water.

If they don't sell one, has anyone done a DIY project to make one?

I assume that DIY is the best way to go. I have a protein skimmer running in one compartment, heater and bio in another...etc.

Any help is much appreciated!

You still need need somewhere waters gases can escape from. I would go with an ATO or just do a daily top off.

Its a 16 gallon tank with no sump. Using an ATO would be quite hard

Yeah I think the ATO would be too much.

I think I just want to cover the center column...leave the filter columns open to release the gas from the water...
