any ideas other than getting some plug-ins!

Do you have any hairy shrooms? When the ones I used to have got stressed they literally stunk up the entire downstairs to the point that I was running 20 oz of GAC with no effect. My wife couldn't do laundry so I had to take them to the LFS for a big loss. And BTW, I WOULDN'T have had that skynard song stuck in my head all day if you hadn't mentioned it Doan LoL however im already sitting here singing it. Take care!

Hi Mark,
Can I ask how long your tank has been up? Did you cure your rock in the house, where the tank is now, or in the garage?
