Red Cherry Shrimp and Meds for fish

Hi all, I'm wondering if anyone can help with this question.

I have got a very established planted tank with a lot of Red Cherry Shrimp in that are doing very well.

In the tank I have also got 4 x large Cardinal Tetras. One of them has developed White Spot, and another has got fungus on its body towards the end of its tail.

I am wondering if and what Meds can be used with shrimp in the tank. I've got Myxacin, Protozin and Acriflavine. Are any of these okay to use, or would you suggest an alternative?
Or should I just catch the two neons out and euthanise them if it is no good using Meds in a shrimp tank?

Thanks

I have used Myxacin in the past with shrimp and no problems but I wouldn't like to say that's the norm.
Esha exit and 2000 are shrimp safe....if you can net the Cardinal with the fungus you could give that a bath in Methylene blue daily in separate container which will help.
