Painting room with tank in.

Hi, I am going to paint the room with the tank in and was wondering if it's ok to just cover the tank for the night to protect it from the fumes.

That's what I would do.. Cover the tank, sump, turn of the protein skimmer.. Open any windows in the room and then fans on to get them out.. Any say I've done this but that's what I would do
