yellow tang acting funny

This morning I did a water change and while doing so I knocked over some rocks. After the water change I proceded to put them back I picked up one perticular rock and my yellow tang went crazy he turned around and kept hitting me with his back fin. As quickly as I could I put the rock back and for the past 4 hours he has been facing a corner or swimming in tight circles. This has never happened before he has usually swimming all over my tank and chaseing things

It sounds like your fish was extremely stressed. Fish obviously have some kind of memory since they can associate certain cups or people with feeding time, etc. It's possible he associated your "intrusion" in the tank with being taken from the ocean, handled at and on the way to the store you bought him from, etc., which may have set him off. The possibility of memory aside, it's arguably a natural reaction if the walls of your environment (his rocks in this case) suddenly start falling over.

My guess is that he will begin behaving normally again soon if he hasn't already. How has he been since you posted about it happening?
