The filter thats in there now, i only put in there when i added the new fish (about 3 weeks ago) and i do take it out and rinse it with clean water (atlease once a wek or so)
The order is very strong, but only when i opens the lid (cover)...I nticed this morning that my new black moore, has one speck or fungus (i think) on his tail....It looks like a little peice of cotton. Could this be whats making the water or filter smell...? I am planning on starting a fungus med today to help save my black moore....I dont want to loose these fish too...

Make sure the water you use for rinsing the filter is non-chlorinated water and don't rinse to vigorously. Rinse off the dirt and put it back in the filter. Keep doing weekly (10 - 15 %) water changes. Don't add too many fish at one time. Slow is better. Don't overfeed. Better to feed a little 2 or 3 times a day than a big feeding once per day.

The single most important thing you can do for your fish (other than feeding) is a water change.
Goldfish are large bodied fish and consume a good amount of food. Water changes are critical for aquarium maintenance. Water changes are a lot easier and cheaper than meds.
