Default Which Rock(s) Messed Up My pH? - pale fish

An awfull lot of assumptions made by an inexperienced person that is
known to pass out bad info and make haphazzard guesses if she can not
find a copy / paste on another website that fits the need. I can buy
calcium based rocks at my LFS asshole, and its somethinmg I would not
put in a tank which I desire to have a low ph in...........Yet
another jerk that relies on a LFS giving good info out..duh!

About a month ago I added three rocks (well, 2 large and several small
matching ones) to my aquarium and a few days later my male dwarf
gourami began to loose color, stop building nests and won't spawn.

Here's his photo, he looks pathetic...

He almost looks emaciated. Is he eating? If you don't want to remove the
new rocks can you move him to another aquarium?

I know NOTHING about identifying rocks and stones so I'm posting their
photos in hope that someone can tell me which one(s) altered my pH.
(Was 6.9 and is now 7.7)

Where did you get these stones? Are they from a pet store? If so they
should be safe.
