Gravel Siphon starting to stink.

Hello I was wondering what I should do to clean my gravel siphon, I've had this for over 2 years and just now it is starting to get a weird fishy smell,(not a fresh fish but a rotting fish) and would like to know what would be the best method in cleaning it. I was thinking maybe hot water and some diluted bleach would do the trick but I would like your thoughts first.

Thanks for the help,
-Charles

Huh... never had that happen before, but I haven't had my siphon for that long, so I can see why it happened... Hot water and dilluted bleach sound like a nice idea; another thing you can try is hot water and vinager. Either or, I think it would help while making sure to rinse it out a lot and letting it dry once you're done treating it with the concoction!
