My brothers tank has the same problem, we have cleaned the filter, the tank. done a water change but once the tank is closed up it goes back to the smell within an hour. He has 2 small fantails, 1 comet and 1 Chinese Algae Eater.

What kind of filter do you have on your tank?
Is it a 20 Long or 20 H, 30 Long or 30 H?
