It was growing on the suction cups of the heater too, so idk if it's just that kind of material or what. But I had some growing on my little cave I made, mainly on the silicone sealant I used as glue, so I wasn't sure if it was a parasite or fungus or what.

What you're having there is not fungus and therefore making adding chems utterly pointless that is calcium built ups from the hardness of your water!!!
I can only urge you to be MUCH more careful about dumping random chemicals into your tank then you appear to me at the moment. If a tank or some decor is dirt: Take it out & clean it w/out cleaners and only clean water! If you have calcium built up on parts: Take them out soak with vineyard brush off done!

Medications and other chemicals in a closed system like that should ALWAYS be used as the very LAST resort not as a first 'best guess' attack on the fish that is sooooo dangerous what you're doing there!!!
