Well, if you aren't vacuuming your gravel there's probably some food/poo left in the cracks and crevices. I would vacuum with your water changes and depending on how many you do per week, at least 1 vacuum. I do 2 50% per week with my uncycled 5.5 and 3 gallon and I've never had the fishy smell unless I'm a little overdue on cleaning.

same here, my water never smells fishy but it could be that I change the water twice a week since I am cycling it.

I only do 1 50% a week on my 5 gallon....I suspect your smell, Alchemistnv, is from not vaccuming the gravel...The smell is probably decomposing poop!
