The smell is coming from the tank itself, right? Not the filter (which I assume you bought new as well)..?

What did you do when you "re-cleaned" (ie bleach, just water, scrubbed, etc)?

Once you get some fast-growing plants in there, I bet the remnants of the smell will go away.

if there are no fish and you want to basically A-bomb this thing, I think you should really do the bleach thing, its a little drastic measure but it should kill pretty much anything in there that could be causing the odor

or you could pull the hardscape for a couple days, change the water and see what happens.

Yes, it is, but putting bleach in an aquarium does not result in the production of harmful amounts of chlorine gas. I've done it many times.

Just don't mix it with other cleaners in the water. THAT can release chlorine gas. By itself, no problem.

Not really. Here's what appears to be a decent article written about it:

(there's no mustard in it, either!)
