Apistograma with very strange disease

Hello everyone!!! two weeks ago i bought a beautiful male apistogramma cockatoo, he swam everywhere, scoured the bottom and played with the otocinclus, but three days ago he started getting close to the surface, when he goes down to the bottom he starts rubbing himself in the gravel very quickly and after that it goes up again and it spins close to the surface, since when I bought it it seems to eat the flakes and expel most of it through the gills, but it has gained weight since it arrived, it has a grayish stain from the store, what can it be to be? to something I can do? the aquarium has 75 liters (20 gallons) is planted with ph 6.6 and temperature 27 degrees (80 faireheits), it lives with 4 otocinclus and 1 BN pleco, yesterday I had a water change and applied a fungicide and bactericide but it didn't work.
