I can't say that this could never happen, but in my experience it 
doesn't.  I had a 55g acrylic tank that was all scratched to hell (it 
was free, what can I say?) that served as a hospital tank for a 
while. It was dosed with malachite green repeatedly and never left a 
stain, even in the scratches.

I have had malachite green stain the silicone in the corners of glass 
tanks, but that never bothered me.
