What is the salinity? Have you tried anything to eliminate the white spot? What is your temperature? Tank size and what fish in it?

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

to fallow up what lupin said - How long do you wait to add new fish after one dies of white spot - and how do your LFS mollies look?

None of the fish are brackish. What made you think they're brackish? No need to add salt if you were doing it on the advice of some lfs. What is your salinity? If it's high end, hyposalinity will probably work.
