Painting a wall; harm my betta?

In preparation of my new bedroom suite arriving, my dad is painting a wall in my room. We're just moving furniture away from that wall so he can get behind there and paint. Do you guys think I need to move my aquarium out of the room completely?

I wouldn't worry too much about it unless the paint drips in the water. It might be a good idea to move the fish, though. Hopefully someone else can give you more help than I did.

Ya, I would move it just to be safe. Easily it could get knocked over, paint could get into it, etc.

The fumes from the paint could harm bettas, since they breathe the air. So I would just move the tank out of there. :)
