My wife has noticed my 90 gallon tank is stinking. I had this tank in my garage for 1 year and decided to move it inside my house. I transported 30 gallon in a barrel from the original garage water and the rest was new from my house. My wife and I decided to decorate the tank with a big dinosaur skull ornament (Fake of course). She feels like thats whats stinking, I have an Rena FilStar XP2 and a whisper 60, alsp a hydro sponge filter with a air pump running to it .I left all the media and didn't change it so I would have plenty of bacteria. Any advise??? Quick help before I have to move my tank.

What about the anorbic(sp?) bacteria from the substrate? You might have stirred up
some pockets when you moved it.
That stuff stinks from what I've heard.
Someone who knows what I am referring to, please help me out here...

Some plastic decorations can put off smells such as ammonia. Remove the dinosaur head and do a partial water change. See if that fixes it. If it doesn't then we can proceed from there.

But it is likely the decoration.
