Tank Smells

I have a 30 gallon fowlr tank that has been up and running since December. I have five fish, a shrimp, some snails and hermits in the tank. The last couple of days there has been a bad smell coming from the tank that I have not had since the tank has been setup. I am still new to this hobby and unsure what this might be or indicate about my tank. Should I be concerned? Thanks

What does it smell like? It shouldn't smell. What are the parameters in the tank? Have you been doing weekly water changes and maintenance?
