It almost looks like Oodinium to me. If so, you can try raising the heat (my book says 91.4-93.2F for 24-36 hours) wow, that seems pretty warm and you will need to aerate the water quite a bit. The only other treatments I can find are for FW fish.
Before attempting this, I would consider the other options and other suggestions are welcom, since I have never dealt with Oodinium....

Amlyoodinium should have wiped them out a long time ago, though. Either way, Chloroquine will wipe out Cryptocaryon, Amloodinium, and Turbellarians.

Innovator from what iv read about chloroquine it's hard to find and some say that if copper is used the right way it's more efective because it attacks two stages ware as chloroquine attacks only one. If I do decide to use copper I was thinkin I could add the treat ment to new saltwater with the higher salinity and kill to birds with one stone does that sound like a good idea or should I just use the copper wait for the parasite to die then start to increase the salinity

Chloroquine wins hands down because it is safe for elasmobranches and teleosts including sensitive fish such as butterflies, seahorses, etc. The same cannot be said about copper, but if you go the copper route then use Cupramine. Use copper at their natural salinity (bring the sg up slowly).

Here are a couple places to order:

Fishman Chemical, LLC
https://webstore.spectrumchemical.co...&section=10170

I would bring up the salinity to at least 28ppt. and dose for 15ppm (actual dosage closer to 10ppm). My suggestion is to either perform a 50% daily water change and redose accordingly or redose at day 6 after a 50% water change. The treatment duration is usually only 10 days.
