standard procedure is to remove fish for treatment in a hospital tank and let the tank sit dormant (without fish) for about six(opinions vary) weeks. Without fish for a hosts, the lifecycle of the parasite will be broken and the existing parasites will eventually die off. If fish are reintroduced into the display tank too soon, the parasite will persist.
