Do any of you have any recommendations on how to help eliminate the odor comming from my fish tank? It's not terrible but it's not good lol. I just want to know if anyone has any ideas to help reduce it, or if theres a chemical not harmful to fish that anyone uses to help get rid of it or reduce it. Also do any of yous have an odd smell?

Have you tested the water for ammonia? Sometimes tanks can have an odor if ammonia levels are high.
If ammonia is not the problem, you can try adding carbon to the filter.

I find that the 'odor' comes and goes and probably has something to do with the condition of the water so I can only backup twister here. I thought my tank smelled too a few weeks ago but it went away on its own. I cleanup the tank weekly, although I've had other problems by doing too much of that lately. It seems to be a fine balance...

do you change the water weekly?

Yes i do, im going to do another, will adding more carbon to my filter hurt my fish or anything?

Carbon just masks the problem, but no adding more will not hurt the fish. The reduced flow rate resulting from the added media may, but not the carbon itself.

Ok so my best bet is to just do another water 10% water change?

what is your temps? to high it could cause it to smell. Or if the flow isNt moving fast enogh.
