Re: Help! Smelly fish tank
This is probably a moot point and blatantly obvious to most people here, but activated carbon inserts in a filter are specifically designed to filter out odor-causing particulates in the water. You could double the carbon in your filter (if possible), or fabricate your own carbon inserts using media bags and raw carbon allowing you to "overload" them, so to speak.
And in the absence of using Prime, I really hope you are using some other sort of dechlorinator, elsewise you might be poisoning your fish with chlorine from the tap.
