Well, I suppose that if your Tampa mollies were from salt or brachish
water, and they are now in freshwater, that may have been the
stressor that allowed the pathogen to get loose and attack your fish.
That's actually an interesting hypothesis. Perhaps this particular
disease consistently behaves in this manner -- remaining
dormant/suppressed in salt water, but being expressed virulently in
freshwater. Someone need a fish pathology degree?
