Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? not moving, lying at bottom of tank
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? Lazier, won't eat
When did you start noticing the symptoms? Were lethargic last night. Won't move this morning
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how? Draining tank, doing 75% water change, boiling substrate
Does your fish have any history of being ill? None
How old is your fish (approximately)? Bought him at Petsmart 1 month ago.

Help, I just put river rocks in my 10 gallon tank, I think I forgot to boil them. My betta looks ok, but my cories are all lethargic not responding to anything. What could have been on the river rocks or is it something else? There have also been big temperature fluctuations in the tank due to heater issues, but nothing under 70 degrees or above 78 degrees.

Also, should I treat my floramax substrate as contaminated and boil that too or just the rocks?
