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.
