cichlid scrapping scales

ive noticed that my 5 inch red top aristochromis has been scapping his head on the cement background. now hes got a small patch of flesh visible were there are no scales. i had my water tested a few days prior and was told my water was nearly perfect. when i give him food he takes it and spitts it back out so th pellets fall to the ground. im goin to treat for ich tonight because it looks like my other fish(who acts fine) has white areas around his gills. also ive raised my temp to 80-81ish to help treat ich as well
