These have fairly high salinity tolerance don't they?

If so, just add about 10 grams per litre of salt. There are 28 grams in an
ounce and 3.8 litres in a US gallon. You can do the math. :-) Leave them in
that until the parasites are gone.

If you pull them out and get their "root" mass then they won't grow back.

Clout or formaldehyde will work too.
