Is Ich Shiny?

I cant tell if theres ich in my tank. There are little shiny spots on on the little black tube that sucks up water into the filter and on the greenish brown algae that grows on the bare area of my tank. Do you think they're air bubbles?

2 weeks ago I had an ammonia spike to light green, and a little purple in the nitrite. I used a 3 day feeder over the weekend and it crashed the cycle.


ammonia = 0

nitrite = 0

nitrate = < 20

thanks :)

Normally you cannot spot Ick in a tank.You usually only see it when your fish show the symptoms of grains of salt on their bodies.My bet is its air bubbles you are seeing as I have air bubbles stick to my filter from my airstone which is near it.
