Re:Fishy smell

<< Another curious fact is that in my old setup, with a filter, heater and
 light, I could smell a fishy scent from my tank. That was a tank with very
 little plants. Now I keep the low tech high plant low fish tank, I don't
 smell anything. I attribute this to the lack of nitrogen as the plants are
 doing their job.

The so-called "Fishy smell" in the puiblic water supply in Buffalo NY in
August is always blamed on summer algae blooms.  I suspect the loss of odor
in your current conditions is because you have reduced the algae levels.
