Theres really no point in isolating the fish because your going to have to treat the whole tank.

What do you mean you "redid" the tank?

I took out the "Christmas" gravel, and I put in new gravel (after being washed and such). I also added a new plant.

Anyway, per website instructions I upped the temp a degree and added extra air.

The tank already had a bit of salt for the mollies.

How much salt did you dose? What salt did you use? Table salt should be fine and is cheaper than aquarium salt.
