I don't know if this is a fact or just someone's opinion but I read that the free swimming stage is indeed photosynthetic, and thus requires light in order to swim...

I think someone else said the meds kill the cysts that drop off the fish. Not true, there's another stage in the lifecycle before the meds become effective. It's the resulting spores (dinospores?) that the meds kill off, so gravel vac like hell to remove those cysts before they send forth the next wave of spores...
