Did you kill all of your BB? If your water is treated in any way, using chlorine or chloramine, and you didn't use water conditioner, you could have killed it.

Did you dechlorinate your water?

As Le Duke above said, if you took out all the water and replaced it with unchlorinated water, that could have killed the beneficial bacteria in your tank, which breaks down waste and harmful ammonia, and that could potentially cause a smell.
