ick and malachite green

a few days ago, a small ick infestation broke out in my 55-gallon amazon tank
among some tetras.  yesterday, i dosed it with some malachite green that i
found in my supplies, which is a few years old.

1.  will this still work even though it is a few years old?
2.  will this harm plants, snails, naked catfish?

i've always heard that malachite green was a very effective medication against
ick.  the label says "use half the amount indicated for tetras and catfish,"
so that's what i did.  i also raised the tank temperature to around 83 (it was
high 70's).

thanks for any help.
