I once treated a clown goby by floating an ice cream pail in my main tank. The pail had a bubbler and copper treated medicine in it, I had to be very careful not to spill the water into the main tank. I don't see this working very well for you though since the fish are larger and your main tank will carry the disease for quite awhile, putting the fish back might result in them getting sick again.

I have also heard of people having success with giving their fish freshwater dips or formalin dips whenever they saw any signs of disease. This could be very stressful for the fish though and you will have to research how to do it properly.

I did the freshwater dip with my clown when i think he was going through the same exact thing as my gramma is now. I tried to give my gramma a fw bath, BUT i have a lil over 65 pounds of rock in my 55 so imagine how hard it is catching a small gramma who squeezes inbetween rocks.. I really dont wanna reaquascape.

Just keep up with your water changes, also parasites don't like warmer water (that's what I've read anyways), you could slowly raise your temp to around 80 (not more than 1 degree per day though).
