It smells swampy and my whole living room stank ... it is when you go "hey I have algae" and when you go to scrape it off that it just instantly releases from what it was on and floats around in a sheet..
Get some Ethromyacin (sp?) at petsmart or your local fish store.. $15 and follow the directions on the back. I used a whole box for my 10 gallon and now it's gone.
Prime has a rotten egg smell... quite strong due to sulfur, but BGA smells like a decaying swamp with rotten leaves and .. well it smelled like the Bog of Eternal Stench and I didn't even have a bad case of it.
