New Maracide on the Market

I'm dealing with a small ICH problem, and after dosing twice, noticed I was low on Maracide. I went down and bought some more. Lo and behold, and to my disappointment, Mardel has done away with the fabulous Analine Green active ingredient and substituted Malachite Green in its place. I'm bummed because I used Rid-Ich and Paraguard before, which also include Malachite Green, but these meds were not as effective as the Analine-based version of Maracide.

Is it possible that what Malachite Green is mixed with makes a difference? Any chemistry whizes or science experts want to lend a hand here?

Thanks in advance.
