Unhappy My Golden Shinners are twitching and swimming into walls a day

The other day I was fishing and I had some extra minnows so I went home and put them in my fish tank. A day later i came back and they were twitching and swimming into walls. What is wrong with them?

My first guess is they are not suitable for aquaria, usually minnows need fast flowing, cool water capable of high O2 levels.

My second guess is massive acclimation stress.

My third guess is an uncycled tank.

I wouldn't risk putting live bait into any of my tanks, too many pathogens and disease for my taste.
