Question Water change when there is a bubble nest

Hi All,

My Betta just built his first bubble nest and he is guarding it all the time.
Am having some fungus infection in the tank.
I have to take him out and clean the tank inside out.

He is guarding it very closely. when i put my finger on the side of the tank near the nest he flares. But in other places he jus playfully follows the finger.

Is it ok to take him out and do the change. I dont want to stress him !

Appreciate your response.
