I am going to suggest using Acriflavine for treatment. Acriflavine is safe for everything in the tank, but I would remove all live plants during treatment... or treat in a quarantine tank.
Please be forewarned, Acriflavine will stain the water, and also anything else it comes into contact with. Please take care when handling it. It also has the ability to stain the silicone seals in the tank, and is why some people prefer to use it only in a quarantine tank rather than risking staining the main tank.
Effective options that are safe for both species of fish is somewhat limited, and the reason I suggest Acriflavine is because it is potent enough and has the right ingredients to treat both fungal and bacterial issues at the same time. It is the most practical choice I can find for you. Many other good meds for this type of issue are either not safe for one species or the other, or cannot be mixed to treat both problems at once.
Keep me posted and let me know if you need further help.
