    Default Drywall dust: do I need to worry?

    I just learned that our office renovation is more extensive than I realized, which will include knocking down several walls in my area. The new concern is for the nano that is just coming on line.... how much do I need to worry about drywall dust seeing into the open top tank?
    Detroit's oldest large LED tank! Est'd Jan 2005, went LED June 2009. 6' wide 130g reef, Sunbrite T10 LED tubes (3xGen 3 and 1xGen 1), mostly SPS, but chalices, other LPS, and a few softies too.

    I would think, some anyways. There's always cellophane and or cheese cloth. But definitely cover it with something. At least while they're working.

    I work construction drywall drust can be very problimatic with reef tanks. I would cover the tank with plastic drop clothes of some sort.

    Thanks folks. I can close my door, and probably use some cloths too, but that dust always gets everywhere. I guess I could make a cover out of acrylic. I hear that Lowe's will cut acrylic to shape.
