The only thing you have to be mindful of, is any medications containing malachite green. Not only does it stain, but it is also light sensitive and so treatment needs to be done in a darkened tank otherwise it may not work. Not sure how much of an effect this will have on your plants.
I find ich and velvet really hard to dislodge even with high temperatures. My tanks have been sitting at 30/31 degrees celsius and I still have velvet present. It is quite frustrating to deal with those parasites as their life cycles are long and they are hard to completely eradicate.
