the article doesnt mention this but you should do it in a quarantine tank and not your main. There are many many posts on this. Just keep reading the sick fish section and ask any questions you may have. I think most of us have been through ick.

Here's the best "how to" article on hyposalinity out there...

ATJ's Marine Aquarium Site - Reference - Hyposalinity Treatment

That would be my choice.
