Stinky stinky

The last time I pulled my centerpiece out of my ten gallon to scrape it off (driftwood with anubias on it) I noticed a slight odor... It smelled a whole lot like patchouli. I came home today and I can smell it anywhere in my bedroom, and it smells like it's the tank!

No hippie jokes please!

I have been dosing the tank with Melafix, could that be the cause?

Mantis shrimp ate my baby.

My guess would be that it's the melafix... I would say melafix definitely smells like hippies.

yea..I would probably say its the Melafix. Whenever I use it I have the same problem, I use less then a teaspoon in the tank and my entire room smells like it.
