ok before everyone freaks out at me let me explain.

I have been struggling with Brown Jelly Disease BJD for a couple months now and I can't seem to get rid of it. I dip all of my sps and lps in iodine, but they still seem to get sick. 

the only other solution that I can think of would be to use antibiotics in my display tank to get rid of the microbe from the entire system. I understand that I would have a serious recycle in my tank and I would have to reintroduce BB and do lots of water changes. I have a refugium that could help with the recycle not being so huge. I  am just sick of throwing away my favorite corals. 

I was looking for opinions and suggestions on getting rid of this problem. Also what antibiotic I could use that is safe for my livestock. 

This is a list of my livestock:

Yasha Goby
Pistol Shrimp
astrea snails
nassarius snails

birdsest frag

Hammer Coral
Torch Coral

Other coral
Hairy Mushroom

That's kind of difficult to say... I'm not aware of a single effective antibiotic that doesn't kill at least one thing on that list or the micro life in your tank...
