I have not run into this gross infection, but you want to make sure you know what you are treating. Since it seems that you are treating parasitic worms, make sure the meds cover that. Are you treating your whole display tank, or are you able to isolate the infected fish? I'm not sure if you can mix the formalin with the food med. I do not own either meds and if there is a warning on the medication itself, i would not mix it with another med. The *only* time I mix meds is if I am using an antiboditic and Melafix (to prevent secondary infection).
Hopefully someone with more med experience will be able to help out.
Also, please list your water parameters
