Answer a few questions first.

1. How big is the tank?
2. How long has the water been in the tank before evaporating?
3. How often do you clean the tank?
4. Does it have a filter?

Oh God LMFAO.

Evaporation is a natural phenomenon, the reasons why you may be losing water:

1. It has been a long time since you did a water change or added any water to the tank and it has evaporated away slowly

2. The room the fish tank is in is very dry (low humidity) and evaporates quickly

3. Tank may be leaking

4.


In any case, you can just top the water off. Don't forget to add dechlorinator

Just to be clear, you are doing the proper water changes for the size of the tank, correct?
Evaporation leads me to assume that either the needed water changes are not being met or there's a leak.

And Zoe, LOL.

No problem with topping it off! Just remember that it's NOT a substitute for a water change.
*sigh* if only
