Need to reseal my floor - toxic fumes - Tips to protect tank


I need to reseal my slate floor (my wife used disinfectant that stripped the seal) and I don't fancy moving my tank for a single day.

Anyone got some tips on protecting my tank from the fumes?

I am thinking that I should get some heavy thick sheets or old curtains and then cover up the tank top to bottom, with multiple layers.

Anyone else got some tips?

I would think what you suggested is a good idea. You might also want to get some fans to blow the fumes away from tank as a secondary precaution.
