Malachite green question...

I am in the process of treating a new hillstream (a "lizard fish" homaloptera sp.) that I bought a week ago. I am using Nox Ich which is Malachite green, at 1/2 dosage. So far, I have seen no improvement. The spots are getting bigger and I have noticed more on the fish. The new spots may have been on the fish before and I just noticed them as they have gotten bigger. I have not noticed any spots on any other fish in the Qtank. I had read that Malachite green would kill the ich on the fish, and not just the free swimming form. I am not seeing any evidence of that. The directions say to use the product for three consecutive days. I am now on my fifth day of treatment. Bein
