Question Why Arowana swim head up from water surface?

Hi sifu.
Recently my Arowana swim fast with vertical head up from water surface like water skiing . When I walk towards him, he swim back to normal.

Water PH around 7 n free from ammonia.

Any idea?

Note : he didn't want to eat anything, thinking switch back to super worm 😔
