Good morning, we have recently added a Jack Dempsey to our tank and now there has been a weird smell coming from the tank. We have mainly cichlids in the tank and one Bristlenose. We have cleaned the tank and even paid a professional to clean it and the smell seems to leave but after a few days it returns. I just want to make sure this isn’t some sort of sign that the fish are having issues or the tank needs more frequent care. Any suggestion?

Thank you

Can you describe the smell?

Check the lid area or top of tank and under the rim for uneaten fish food.

What size is the tank and how frequently do you do water changes?

What product are you using to dechlorinate the fresh water?
