I have such a high current it seems like its evaporating very fast. Im constantly checking the salt ammonia and nitrates. And we are putting at least 6 gallons or more in per week.

Just try different kinds of food see if anything he like. Yeah I done loads research before I got as never had fish before and still do when see something odd so make sure fish are happy and healthy. Don't no what could course the evaporating as seems a lot but depends on how big your tank is and if u got hood/lid but that's just a guess as dont really lose much water

I found out its because of the protein skimmer i have. It produces a large waterfall that sprays off a good amount of water. So i guess this is normal for the equipment i have.

I have a 110 gal and loose 1 gal per day to evap. ATO keeps things in check. My ATO resevior is refilled every 5 days and its 5 gals.
A standard 75 has the same footprint as the 110 and would have very similar evap.

Thank you so much! I have been worried but that is about the same amount of water evaporating from mine. That makes me feel much better.
