I dont know what diseases mollies are most prone to but when i had them the only thing i ever had to deal with was ich. i have herd of them getting all the usual, fin rot, parasites, pop eye. this is why it is such a great idea to have a quarantine tank.

A QT is a place that you keep new fish for a few weeks to make sure they are healthy before you put them in the tank with the rest of your fish.

Your Mollies are prone to most common fish diseases, and should be kept in a situation where Stress is very low, with 1-1.25 teaspoons of non-iodized salt per gallon of water. Stress seems to be the most important thing to avoid. Also be sure to maintain a very high water quality for them.:)
