I don't think it hurts the fish to have the water nice and fresh.
Ick! Fish water rug, I can see where that would be a problem. lol
Odd, that it smells and you are doing that much cleaning. My tank smells just like 1077's, kinda like a moist "garden". What exactly are you smelling, as in what does the smell remind you of?? Maybe it stinks to you but maybe it's a good smell that you're simply not familiar with??? Just a thought.
Fish rug, yuck! All the more reason to have tiled and hardwood floors. I'm always amazed at how much water I get all over the place when I'm doing tank maintenance. If I had rugs when I started this hobby they would have been ripped out long ago, lol.
