Will this work for treating Brooklynella in clownfish?

After doing some research I've come to the conclusion that one of my clownfish has Brooklynella, I noticed it a few days ago and now she's covered in slimy stuff and has no interest in swiming with the others or in the anemone.
I found this on ebay >>> Aquasonic Formalin Malachite Solution 250mls treatment whitespot ectoparasites | eBay and was wondering if it will work for what I need. I know I need Formalin but this is the closest I can find.
For that price and the fact it can get here in a few days I'm willing to try it if there's a chance it will work.
Also, item description:
Fish only treatment, not suitable for invertebrates
Does that mean it will harm my anemone? (it's the only other thing in the tank). If I have to treat the fish in a separate tank, it will only be a small tank about 12L, how would I work out how much to put in when directions are 1mL per 40L?

Also I want to try a freshwater dip, how would I do that?
