Ok To Add Fungicides While Cycling A Tank?

I’m cycling the tank using bits of bluegill I caught from a lake. I can see some fungal spores developing around the shredded fish. (They look like bubbles or foamy capsules)
Will the anti-fungal medication affect the nitrogen cycle?
In other words, do fungicides affect good/bad bacteria?

    when a tank is cycling the water gets toxic it’s hard to treat a disease while the water is poisonous and depending on the medication it will stall the cycle usually it’s best to complete the cycle without adding other products
