In my 60 gal I am losing about a gallon and a half a week. Keep in mind during colder temps outside and winter you will lose more because it is not as humid. I'm expecting to lose about half a gallon of water every 2 days in the winter. I would say it is normal.

In my 90 gallon acrylic tank I didn't want to run a chiller. So I installed two 4" fans on the canopy and leave the lids off. My sump is 42" long x 16" wide x 18" tall and open as well. LED lights under the canopy and three small pc's on the sump. My house generally stays around 80 degrees all the time. My tank stays around 78 constantly. And now to the evaporation, probably 1.5 gallons a day, but it's worth it not to have run a chiller. So losing 3 quarts sounds very reasonable to me.
