This is the first I am hearing that the smell of our tank could indicate we are not cycled. We went purely by the water test results. Our amonia spiked and then leveled off, our nitrites spiked and then leveled off. We did the water change, had our water tested at the water store to double check our results and added 2 clowns and crabs - which are doing well too.

We did 1 water change last week and the smell is getting better. I beleive my canister filter does already run charcoal.. do you mean to run more? I'm confused.

Do a water change and see if the smell would go away. You should do a water change at least once every two weeks when it is cycling. I think you added the clowns a little to early.

It is safe to assume that all LR that gets shipped is not cured, simply because if it was cured, then there will be some dieoff through shipping.

Our LR was not shipped. We picked it up at the guy's house and had it in our tank within the hour. I will continue with water changes and see it the smell continues to diminish.
