Chloroquine (hydroxy- or otherwise) is an anti-malarial drug. Malaria is a parasitic infection. So maybe it's useful for other parasitic infections too.

If I read the stories right, the fish-tank version is not a tank cleaner, but an anti-parasitic drug. You dissolve a tablet in the water, and it treats or prevents some kind of parasitic infections in your fish.
