Welcome to the forum, Wendi.

This is odd. Mollies should be able to tolerate that pH. Mollies prefer high pH. I'd be careful when lowering the pH. What are your KH and GH? Test both your tapwater and tankwater.

Pls stop using the pH down. It will do nothing but harm your fish. Once its effects wore off, the pH will swing back to its usual level. If the difference is very big, your fish will tremendously be harmed and eventually killed.

You must determine your GH and KH. If your KH is very high, you'll have a difficult time lowering the pH.

Pls post the exact figures of ammonia, nitrites and nitrates. When did you start your tank? Was it cycled? When did the problem start? How do you maintain your tank?

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
