Ich looks like the fish has been sprinkled with salt. Some fish can fight through it, I lost both of my tangs to it.

I strongly recommend you google it and learn about the parasite. You can treat either with cupramine or hyposalinity. But make sure it's actually ich first

Fish/inverts can get bubbles just "stuck" on them. If they ever touch air or go under a bubble wall or something like that they can get little bubbles everywhere.

I've seen it. Sometimes my batfish literally gets bubble on her sometimes then she swims and it comes off.
