Every time I clean it, though (twice a week), I use the gravel vac and poke and mix around the gravel a lot, so I don't know if that's it.

Just a thought, do you use prime to treat your new water, it has a pungent sulfur smell.

Ever since I visited a water recycling plant with my school back in the day, NOTHING has smelt as FOUL. lol.

Try perhaps a 100% water change? I know it's very unadvisable but, it could help. Perhaps your are overfeeding?

well it does stress the fish a little, but since the tank isn't cycled it should be okay.

Only in large amounts like too many is 100 percent bad a little stress every ounce in a while is safe.
