Yellow Tang and Clown problems

Hello I added 30 lbs of LR Saturday and this morning I got up and saw that the seedweed I put out for the Tang last night was still there (not normal) and that the Tang had a white tent to him. I also so that the clown had spots of white throughout him. They are the only two fish I have any suggestions?

I know that I stressed the Tang yesterday when I was arranging the rock in the tank, but I didn't know if it would stress him out this major or if there was something else going on.
