Hello and welcome! It might be easier to read (and understand) your post if you used appropriate punctuation, etc.— not trying to be rude, but just an observation.

IDK, have never heard of this, but curious as to how you decided this was the problem. Can you give us more information, other than “found a fish floating”?

Welcome Katyfrog! Here is some information about Glugea anomala: https://europepmc.org/article/MED/9491425
Some pet companies sell medicine for Glugea anomala.
Let me just take a minute to sort out your question. Please verify if this is correct:
You obtained water from another pond in order to start a wildlife pond.
In the pond water you obtained were some stickleback fish who were then accidentally introduced into your pond.
Later you observed Glugea anomala on the stickleback fish.

Is your intention to have a pond with or without fish? How many gallons is your pond?
I would catch and treat the fish in hospital container. If they recover, then reintroduce them into your pond. Please don't re-release them into the wild even if they recover. They will infect the native fishes. If you don't want the fish, please call your wildlife management department and seek their assistance. Those guys get paid to solve this sort of issue.
