Ok, are they supposed to smell like fish...

Just curious and maybe a dumb question, too...

my Curious Grace has this raw seafood fishy smell in the water that I cup the her out of the tank. Is this normal? How do you get rid of it?

It is not stinking but strong enough for me to smell it.

There is no food remnants in the 1.5g vase since I feed her in my cup, cup time=food time. Actually, as Petco Rescue, she came trained with cup/food association. She loves going into the cup.

Yes a fish smell is normal with a fish. Unless you're going run a carbon filter on your 1.5g vase then, as far as I know, there is no way to get rid of the smell.
