My tank doing fairly well overlooking algie here and there amonia 0.25 at times . Had arm in tank moving a clam after I had my arm out for a few minutes it smells like fishy salt water harbor not rotton but like the harbor. Tank doesn't smell room it's in either . Just my arm and I smell this every time I put my arm in it. Good or bad? Ya I know the threads on bad for the arm . Spent my life in some of the worst liquids in the world including radioactive water. I'm still alive cancer free as of 9:38 pm today. LOL

Glad you're still with us!:D I get some of that smell, too, with good water perameters - I get it most from the sump, I guess 'cause it's in a confined area in the stand. I would assume the smell comes from decomposing organics - pretty hard to avoid in our systems altogether. the little ammonia spikes might be related to it. Bottom line, I'd say if your animals are doing well don't worry about it. If it starts to curl your nose hairs you might have something to look into.

by the way, appreciate your "thin skin" post awhile back. Gets to me at times as well, when I get taken the wrong way and lectured about my "attitude" or being a teacher. this is a great forum. Sk8tr had a good thread today about good forum manners.

Ronny do you run carbon? I've always run it 24/7, but I have noticed when it is not changed and gets a little old, I get some smell from the tank.

Hey you speled algae wrong!

Seriously though my arm always smells the same way...

Oh the irony of pointing out someone's spelling mistake while having a spelling mistake yourself. :lol:

Sure it is from the tank?? ;)


Ronny, I notice that once in a while on my arm. And to be honest, I have never given it a second thought.

Ya I run a Rena-cal filstar canister .
How recently have you changed your carbon? It might be time for a change. Although I agree with the guys above... Saltwater from the tank isn't the most pleasant smell.

Stop smelling your arm. :p

Sorry to hijack but I stole some sand and critters out of a friends tank the other day and a few hours later, noticed how bad my arm smelled. I kept saying to the Mrs, "God my arm stinks" off and on for a few more hours. She finnaly looks at me and says, "Why don't you wash your arm?"

I had no comeback for that
