What happens is that the parasite attaches to the fish and then it falls off and drops to the substrate giving you the idea that the parasite is gone. But what happens is that the parasite splits open and over 200 little ones called tomites come from each one. Then the parasite comes back with a vengence and the cycle repeats. Read these for info and treatment for the parasite. The stuff you used did not do anything. Any reef safe treatment will not work.
