Good product for odor?

What is a good product I can use in my fish tank to remove or get rid of odors?

i think you are out of luck there,
as there would probably be chemicals in there
that would harm the fish,
in all honesty the only option you have
is to clean,and clean really well,

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

What kind of odors? Because mine smells only if you lift the top to feed or clean. I suggest more frequent water changes. It could be the decaying food and poop that gives it a nasty smell. But no matter what, it will smell like a pond or stream.

idk why but it might be algae that makes it stinky. i have a piece of driftwood that actually sticks out of the back of the tank and that tank smells like flowers and so does the water. but when i had wood in my turtle tank it would get really nasty and smelly.

try a power filter with activated carbon... it will remove discoloration, odors and organics. if you already have one, its underrated for your tank.

try this product...
