Has anyone delt with marine velvet?

Marine velvet has pretty much killed all my fish: yellow eyed kole, royal gamma, pair of black clowns, lemon peel tang, brown powder tang, yellow tailed damsel. I'm trying to save the few that are left. My question is how do I remove it from my tank? It's way worse than ick and I want to make sure it's gone. This is a 210 gal reef with a brittle starfish, peppermint and cleaner shrimp, and a watchman goby still in it.

QT the remaining fish and treat with copper. Hypo does not work for MV like it does with Ich. Leave your DT fallow (no fish, but corals, inverts, etc are ok to stay) for 90 days. The MV should die off in there with no host. It's no fun, but that's what will work. If all your fish die, then do the fallow thing and don't add fish for 90 days. Adding sooner risks that some MV is still lurking in there.
