Water change scared the **** out of my Malawis

I realized that they are frightened to **** after I changed the water. They all went hiding whenever they see shadow moving past the tank.
Did I do anything wrong when cleaning the tank? What are some tips in keeping that to minimum?
They used to swim to me whenever I was going to feed them, but not now.

Just siphon the gravel, and rubbing off the algae on the galss. but I did stir the gravel a little bit just to get out as much foods left over as possible.
Hose. Slow flowing water.
