the tank i have has insulated double pane glass and i layered the bottom and plumbing with insulation. many people use thick (around 1") to construct the tank which helps insulate the tank.

Condensation depends in large on the temperature of the room it's kept in, the temperature of the tank, and the thickness of the glass. Since this is a tidal tank I can't imagine condensation would be that much of an issue. You should be fine though, from what you described.
