Rachel O'Leary has a new article in July/August edition of Amazonas on Parasites in Freshwater Shrimp. She wasn't able to find a good treatment for Ellobiopsis. At least it's there for anyone who doubts it's a real issue. Good job!

Great find. Because Ellobiopsis is a protist, medications that work against protozoans might be most effective. This article should be linked to the posts that think that they deal with a fungal infection.

In my opinion, the best way to deal with Ellobiopsis would be to cull (euthanize) the infected shrimp to prevent further spread.
