Thanks for recommending Pacific. I did go this afternoon - they were very helpful, and they have gorgeous fish. They were out of liquid nitrate and nitrite tests, but here are the rest of the numbers:
kH - 1 drop (17.9 ppm)
GH - 3 drops (53.7 ppm)
pH - 8.2
ammonia - 0ppm
I'm guessing kH and GH are on the low side. Do I need to get a product to deal with that?
Also, the pregnant female is behaving very differently - I'm guessing she's getting ready to pop. She's hanging out in corners and in the plants instead of chasing the others around.
I have a second tank set up with a filter, gravel and treated water, but I'm nervous about putting the pregnant female in there until I have the nitrate and nitrite tests, a heater, a light, and some plants. Ha! I thought you got a tank, some water, fish, and you're done!
