Fresh shrimp should not have a strong odor at all. I feed my Ps shirmp all the time and my water don't smell. Don't leave the shrimp in your tank for more than 10 min.

You want to smell really stinky shrimp? leave one in your room and forget about it for two days:agh: . I was done feeding my Ps and they were full so I left one in the cup I use to thaw them and forgot about until two days later when the stench got really bad, it almost made me puke when I went to get rid of it.

What kind of shrimp are you feeding? Regular shrimp doesnt produce alot of odors unless close to rottening. Mud Shrimp.. now that IS awefull. best lure to catching Sturgeons, but damn.. the stentch is disgusting.

I use shrimp as a staple for more than two years now, but I've never had any problems with it stinking up the tank...
The only items that caused the tank to smell were certain types of fish fillet (forgot which ones, as I've never used them again after finding out).
