Is it like the fresh, earthy, lake-y smell in a freshwater HOB filter? 'cause I love that!

Sissy!

Now go stick your nose in a filter or a skimmer or some tubifex worms or something!

this is one of the more disturbing topics on these forums methinks.

I have a gag reflex anytime I get a whiff when I'm dumping mine out. Especially when I see clumps pour out of the cup.

I had to stop pouring it into the toilet, because the bathroom was starting to smell really bad.

I can tell when mine is full cause you can small it 4-5 feet away from the tank, even though its under the cabinet.

Hard core, nasty, nasty stuff.

Gee wiz!!

Who would've thought my off the wall question would have such a long life?

Seriously though, I'm wondering why some of your cups are so dreadful smelling and mine isn't.

Maybe my skimmer isn't working so well. or my bio load (2 clowns, YT, BHT) in a 120 isn't that heavy.
