Hello everyone,This weekend I will be painting the ceiling of the room where my scorpions are kept.Do you think it will be ok to just cover up the tank with some plastic.I've added a false bottom to my 20 gallon tank so I really dont want to move it,but if thats what I should do I will

I realise I could be over reacting but I dont really want to do anything stupid to harm my gravid female.

yeah I think that would be ok, just as long as she isn't covered for ages.

You can make it airtight and they'll still be able to live in that conditions without food and water for months.

Open your windows and turn on some fans.

Heres a lil secret with the paint fumes, add some vanilla extract to the paint and mix it in, it netralizes(sp?) the smell and doesnt change the color of the paint.

open windows and fans are pretty common sense knowledge =o)

I was just worried about the scorpions being so small I figured it would take much less fumes to affect them....

scorpion health not so common sense knoledge to me =o)

I think sealing the tank before you begin work should suffice.
