1) very warm temp (from your earlier posts)
2) uncured live rock
3) possible power outage or outages and irregularities.
I could see the above adding to the smell ?
Maybe try and rearrange your live rock, lift it and maybe move the sand under it.
Just a thought
i stay in kokata, a metropolitan city of india in the eastern side, u guys must be knowing the name Calcutta.
Okay now regarding Power Cuts Yes they happen in india a lot, though last week i have connected my tank power supplies with the generator so if the current goes everything will be started within 10 - 15mins.
My powercuts was sometimes 1/2 hour to 1 hour to 2 hr twice or thrice a week. Is this the problem.Might be.
Does a powerhead cannot be stopped for this much long? Okay now it wont happen due to generator.
Lets wait and see if this was the problem.
Plz reply at the earliest.
