Is this a type of algae?

Found some weird white/grey film type stuff covering my driftwood. After looking at the tank more I found there were little tufts on the substrate as well, and a small amount on some of the plants. Is this some type of algae? Sorry about the camera quality, I just have my iPhone. My tank has been running about 5 days, doing a fishless cycle and have the ammonia up to 4ppm. It is low light, just a T8 on top. I got plants this past weekend and added them yesterday, although I don't know if this stuff showed up before or after I added the plants, I just noticed it this morning. I can try and get better pictures if needed.

Normal fungus slime when setting up a new tank. Its harmless and will disappear soon enough on its own.
