<< 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.
