Oc. Clown acting strange

Last night I redid my rock work in my tank and yes it did stir up a bunch of crud so I haven't done any test yet but as of last test everything was fine save my nitrates which are around 40ppm. But my clown has been swimming sideways at the top like this for an hour or so he will leave and go swim around but then resort to this behavior. Should I be worried?

He is probably stressed out by the spike in nutrients in the water column. Stirring things up is normally a bad idea unless you are siphoning it out as you are doing it.

Do you think he will be ok? I don't have enough RODI to do a decent water change at the moment. My unit is slow.

Depends. Keeping things stable prevents shock, which is what it was from stirring the tank up.
