Full dose the tank and keep the treatment going for a full 3-5 days after the cysts drop off the fish. You need to vacuuming and dosing the tank daily.
The vacuuming will help remove any cysts which have dropped off and keep the water pristine which is what you want while doing treatment.
+one, Would also add airstone to help with oxygen exchange which is affected by warmer temps(less dissolved oxygen) or,lower water level so that filter return creates good surface agitation.
Fishes struggling due to low oxygen level's at warmer temp's ,may or may not recover at all.
Two bristlenose's alone , unless very tiny,, would be a big load for 80 litre tank.Water changes each and every week,maybe twice a week, of near 50 percent would be mandatory for me.
