I have a small pond here in Michigan that I put Sailfin Mollies in over the

decided to  completely reset and clean the tank before I bring them in.

If the pond water was nice and hard and the aquarium water was softer, then this probably caused it. Changes of water chemistry often causes stress and their immune systems can find it had to cope so they get disease much more easily.
