Sick Clownfish? Maybe?

I added some more cleaner crew and 2 ricordia polyps to the tank yesterday. All seemed very well. This morning, my clowns were acting weird, almost as if they were blind. They were gently bumping into rocks as if they didn't see where they were going. Then one decided to go sit on the sand. Well, I had turned down the water flow a tad last night for the shrooms, so I hurriedly turned it back up. They seemed better after a few minutes, and now that I'm home on a lunch break, they're acting normal and they just ate like the hogs they are. I'm wondering if anyone else has seen this, or maybe the O2 level just got low from the diminished flow? Thanks!

125gal, 55gal sump
Ammonia - 0, Nitrite - 0, Nitrate - <2ppm
Ca - 450ppm

What are your alk/pH levels and did the new additions come from a fish tank or invert only tank?

Cheers
