Smell!?? Like from the skimmate or what? Usually not a good sign if the water itself smells

You might want to cut back a bit on skimming depending on what you have in there and run carbon + water change

Lol that's kinda the point to remove some organic nutritrent from the tank , just run carbon till the smell is gone and redose if needed.

Run carbon.

If that doesn't work, some type of air filter.

If that doesn't work...get a job at a fish hatchery, your hair and clothes will smell like fish forever.
 

Have you ever used a spoon, hose and rubber band together to remove algae?
