Your mollies will be good at pH 7.8 or 8, but the tetras won't like it. I wouldn't lower it below 7.0 for the mollies' sake, but you could lower it a bit. Use peat in the filter. As I expect Lupin will mention (and can explain better than I can) the hardness will have an impact on lowering the pH but peat is safe, but don't go too far.

Don't use any chemicals, they do not last (the water buffering makes them inert in the long term) and the fish will be harmed with fluctuating pH levels. It should be done gradually and slowly, over days, if you do want to lower it a bit.

I sent the last reply before I noticed the thread continued, sorry. Is this the same tank that has the cloudiness mentioned in another post?
