Planning to protect tank during fumigation

I need to get my house fumigated for termites. I've looked at the alternative treatments, and none of them can really guarantee killing all the termites. My tank is too big to move, and I don't have a safe place to temporarily house my fish, live rock, etc. So I guess I'm going to cover the tank & sump with nylofume plastic, run an air line to an outside source, and try to (a) seal it thoroughly), and (b) maintain positive air pressure in the tank/sump by pumping air in. Couple of questions:

1. what's a good air pump for something like this?

2. should I turn off the light, or would that kill the yellow colony polyps growing on my LR?

3. appreciate any advice on toxicity of Vikane on marine fish & invertebrates
