Question Painting my bedroom...

So in the near future I'm going to be painting my bedroom. I have one betta in my room right now, and will most likely have a second one by the end of this week ( SO EXCITED ). When the room does get painted (i have to wait until the weather cools off a little so i can open up the windows), should I move the bettas out of my room for a few days, or will they be ok? I know paint creates alot of fumes, and I wouldn't want them to get sick or anything .

My Current bettas:
Sullivan- Orange rose tail halfmoon male
Daisy- Mustard Gas (black and yellow) veil tail female
Milton- Teal butterfly halfmoon male (mom's betta)

You will want to move them. Better safe than sorry.

Yeah I would move them just in case. Paint fumes don't smell too good :/

Just because I don't type with candy and rainbows doesn't mean I'm being mean.
My opinions are based on research and experience. Ask for help!

I figured I should probably move them, but just wanted to be sure. I like to not stress them out if I don't have to but they'll just have to deal with it this time haha =) Thank you!!!!!

A little stress is better than sick of dead fish. You won't have a problem if you move them.

It would be a great idea to move your fish to another location while you paint your walls.
