red area around celebes rainbowfish mouth?

I have had a group of 6 celebes for about two weeks. I have been doing a lot of new planting and the tank has stirred up quite a bit. So I have done about 3 water changes this week.

One of the celebes has a red/pink area around his mouth. His gills may be a bit brighter red interior than normal. It is hard to tell since they are always somewhat red inside the gill flap. He hangs out in front of the filter wash and seems to be gasping more than usual. They always gasp. but his seems deeper, I think.

Ph 7.6
ammonia .025-.05
nitrite <.1

75g highly planted tank. Have done some searching and it could be bacterial, or an ammonia burn. Ammonia was a little high yesterday but I got it down.

Any ideas as to what it is or the cure? Pics:
