Ich question

I thought I may have an ich outbreak. Now I'm wondering if I had ich at all. A few of the angels had some white spots but not many spots, maybe 6 or so but they also got what looked like a secondary fin rot fungus. I turned the temp up to 86 for my vacation and I didn't see anymore spots on any of the fish when i returned. I have 4 clown loaches in this tank too and I know how easily they can catch ich but none of them ever got the white spot's. Their fins seem to be healing now. I will be doing every other day water changes. Is there any other fish disease it could be?

125g Planted rainbow and SA cichlid tank.
20g quarantine tank.

I've read that fish can have Ick and not show the white spots. You probably caught it early enough that there wasn't a huge outbreak. How long were you on vacation? Keeping the temperature between 86-88 degrees is enough to kill off Ick, but you need to keep the temp up for at least 2 weeks. The heat treatment alone worked for me. :)
