Hello and welcome :wave:

Welcome to the forum. What tank(s) do you have or are you still in the planning stages?

Welcome to TFK and to this wonderful hobby we all share. Will be interested in hearing your plans and what type of tank you are setting up. :-)

2 dalinmation mollys, one witch i think is prengant, and dont know how long till she deliveries, r there an signs to look for.. 3 red wag plattys 2females 1 male also i think one is pregnate..1 pocomast .... i have been having a nitrite problem.. done everything local petsmart store has suggested is better now but still stress level any info would be helpfull

How long has the tank been set up? If recently the tank is still going through it's cycling phase, hence the nitrIte reading. What is a pomocast? Is it a pleco? If so, and if it's a common one, it'll grow much too large for your tank (Petsmart should have told you they can reach 18" :shock:). You should be doing partial water changes to alleviate the stress your fish are going through. As long as you show a reading for NitrIte do a water change. Females, when pregnant develop a "gravid" spot (looks dark) and right before birth they get a "squared off" look to their bellys. HTH
