Not really
unless your contractors have the only dust catching device in the world.

I wouldnt suggest it, Just an empty tank alone with just a basement renovation over the winter collected 4" of construction( all dust, drywall dust,concrete dust, wood dust ect) dust in it, it had a full lid on it.

In order to protect it you need to seal it air tight.

I agree, I just remodeled my basement and let my 55G sit empty for 4 months, you would not believe the dust that got into that thing and I even had it tarped.....I know it's not what you want to hear, but it's just not the best idea, you will without a doubt get debri in your tank, and IMO I wouldn't risk it espically if you dumping alot of money into a reef tank
