change in Maracide Now What??

I read the note regarding the change in the Maracide formula. I don't like the new type either. While it did not kill any of my fish,(no loaches in that tank), it didn't work either. I went to four different fish dealers who all reccommended other products with the same ingredient, Malachite Green. Then, while cleaning, I found an unopened packageof old formula Maracide. It worked so well that the next morning the ich was nearly gone! I have several large tanks,all with either tetras or loaches or both, and I'm sure to need something in the future. Does anyone have any good ideas for what to use when this runs out? I'd really appreciate any help!
