Post by star55 on Wed Feb 29, 2012 7:29 am

hey guys i was just wondering if it should just be safer to remove my tank with the leopard geckos out of my room that im going to paint or is it ok to keep everything in my room as i paint and let it dry?

i would say move your leo to another room so the smell from the paint doesnt go into the tank. Could be bad for his respiratory to smell the fumes.

I would move the tank. Even the low or no vapor paints can still put off VOCs that could harm your leo until it dries. I'd kep him out of the room for 2 days after youpaint or until you can no longer smell fumes. you can also put a towel over his viv if you're smelling paint fumes in other parts of the house. Just remember to leave a little ventilation so he can get some air.
