Question Jawfish with marine velvet

I have concluded that my blue spot jawfish has velvet. I've read several options for treatment, but what would be the most effective? He's in a 27gal cube, and I recently added a pair of onyx perculas (before I was aware of the velvet) So I assume I'll need to treat the whole tank. I've got a shrimp, several hermits, turbos, and many zoas, palys, and a leather and bird's nest. What would be safe yet effective for this tank?



thanks

I've decided to pick up a UV sterilizer and some formalin to do a dip.

couldn't find formalin, so I went with copper. Dosed in a QT but jawfish was thrashing so I put him in another QT with no copper. He's going downhill fast, I really wish someone would chime in.

Wish I could help. Sounds like you are doing what you should. Velvet is rough. Sorry to hear of your troubles.
