Just a curiosity,

Would nitrate tests be unreliable if you test while medication is in a tank?

I am not aware of meds interfering with liquid test kits or strips. Aquarists on the forum here putting fish through quarantine or treating illnesses tend to test parameters more often. This is because some medications can kill beneficial bacteria on filters and cause an ammonia spike. Salt also slows beneficial bacteria if introduced with a large dose in a short period of time.

@modified lung do you have any data on this bychance?
