You need a liquid test kit. I suspect the ammonia is getting high in the tank. If your tank is properly cycled, the fish is not overfed, and you do enough water changes, it should only smell like wet dirt when you put your nose just above the water line.

whenever tank water smell bad, the fish is/are in distress...
normally fish excretes slime to protect themselves against bad water condition,
thus, a bad smell..

There's a new fact. Didn't know about that. I thought the smell just came from "dirty" water
