I thought other fish you'd had already showed infection too? Maybe it was
just the mummis? Which I wouldn't be suprised after that came out of the
methylene or copper bath they were probably in, being that while it keeps
the parasites in check, it also totally kills the fish's immune system.

Hopefully this is the case and you can just help ease their pain, which it
sounds like you're accomplishing :)
