I've not had to deal with fish lice (thank goodness!) but I've read the best method is manual removal by tweezers and then treat the tank with something like Jungle Parasite Clear to kill the eggs/larvae. Also vacuum the substrate well.

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty
