I have 6 gold fishes in my aquarium, Lice worms had attached 3 of the gold fishes.
I removed the lice manually taking my gold fish out also, cleaned the tank added un-iodized salt from getting infected with lice again.
But worried if they attack again. So instead of taking them out and removing lice, is there any treatment for killing the lice in the aquarium and what care should be taken care after removing the lice worms.

You Should give a PP bath to the gold fish before adding them to your tank. Remove the gold fish from the tank and add Potassium Permanganate to kill parasites in the tank. Clean the tank thoroughly and then add the fish. You can get PP at any medical store. The concentration that needs to be used can be found on the net.
