Water test and baby mollie help!


So I have a 10 gallon freshwater tank. With 4 mollies and one julli corydora. I had an ammonia spike yesterday and am now trying to fix it. Also my molly just had babies! So yesterday my reading were Ph 7.5 ammonia 0.6 nitrate 0 and nitrite 0. My tank has been running for 3 weeks now. So yesterday i did a 25% water change and added a double dose of cycle. I added another dose of cycle this morning and today my readings are ph 7.3 ammonia 0.6 nitrite 0.3 nitarte 5. I am using a liquid test kit. My water temp is 78 degrees. I have a live water sprite and a sword plant and just now I planted a cucondom or something like that in there. Should I do another water change? I wasn't sure if this would stress my fish out too much.

Also my ballon molly had babies. I put two of them in a live bearer net. How long until I can givrthese away? Should I wait till they are a certain size?

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
