    Copper salts.
    If there are no inverts.

    If you have inverts, even live rock, you will need to move the fish to a quarantine tank. Set it up with all the comforts the fish are use to, such as the existing tank water, and treat with one of the copper containing products for the length of time listed in the instructions. Copper can be removed using adsorption materials, from the water at the end of the quarantine period, but it would probably be easier and cheaper to discard the water.

    An advantage to quarantining all your fish - is the parasite will live out its life cycle and die in the display tank.
