In regards to your salinity, how low is "a little low"?

The clown should be fine until tomorrow, what other life is in the tank (inverts, corals?). What was the salinity prior to the water change?

Well that's a bit of a sudden change, but your clown will be fine. During hypo-salinity treatments people drop the salt level way lower than that. The only concern is the sudden change.
