Tank odor - how can I reduce?

Any ideas on how to reduce tank odor? Fairly new system, about 3 months, but fully cured. Parameters are good. Soft corals and very low bioload.

46 gallon. No sump. Good Tunze skimmer. Also a canister filter.

Will adding activated charcoal to canister help much?
I've also considered making a charcoal screen filter of sorts to fit over the top of the skimmer so that air released out the lid would get filtered through the charcoal.

Any thoughts or ideas?
