You might want to try a water based polyurethane. It will likely
have small amounts of solvent in it but much less than a standard
"oil" based polyurethane. It will require more coats but it dries
very quickly so this is easy to do.
When faced with a situation like this, I normally move the air pump
into a clean environment (outside?). If you are not already using an
air pump, add one for this period of time. I run an airline into the
tank and then cover the tank as tightly as possible leaving only a
tiny opening to let excess air out. This way, the tank is kept
isolated by a positive pressure of clean air which will not let fumes
and dust in. It has always worked well for me. Most of my tanks are
already covered tight enough that I have not needed to add any
additional covering to the tank.
Good luck with your flooring project!
