I don't try to breed them but my female only take of mollies have given birth at around 78 F and always at night. Every time they gave birth it has been after a water change as well.

Mollies should breed at any temp that is comfortable for most tropical fish but I agree that 78 is a good spot for them. I would do 50% water changes once a week. They do prefer harder water but it is better to keep your parameters stable rather than chasing ph all of the time.

What size tank are they in? Do you have lots of cover for the fry?

5)3 temperature is 79F if u think thatís ok . I like to breed them to feed my arowana . I have a breeder box when theyíre ready . I got a 10gallon tank, but I went to 2/3 fish locations and they Said 20g is recommend but 10g is ok but u canít add more then 5 fishes. Soo

Yeah 79 is good for them. You will definitely have better success in a larger tank because that will give fry more room to hide and they will grow faster due to cleaner water. If you just want feeders and your 10gal tank then I would recommend guppies or platies because they stay smaller and in my experience, they are not as inclined to eat their fry.
