Thats a good idea. This may be a stupid question, but does the parasite live on snails and cleaner shrimp?

It doesn't "live" on them as a parasite, but it is theoretically possible that inverts can carry the cysts, which will then hatch into your tank. If possible, buy inverts from tanks without fish.

No guarantee, but hey, what is?

It's not necessary to hypo inverts. And like Steve said, they wouldn't survive. You will be leaving your tank fallow for 4-6 weeks while your fish is in QT hypo treatment, in that time, since the parasite can't feed off the inverts, they should die out.
