Got a ten and a twenty. We are going to paint in the room where the fish are. I can't move them, don't have anywhere to put them, the house is in a mess! What do I do with the tanks? Put a towel over them? And the smell? Thanks.

Yeah a towel should do it or better still, a large piece of plastic, especially if your painting near/around the tank. The smell, try keeping the windows for as long as possible or using low odour paint. I really don't think you've anything to worry about. I done mine a while back, no problems....

Agreed! air movement and a place for fumes to vent out if the key. If you can open a window or door and use a fan, the concentration of fumes will be minimal.
