I would do a water change with whatever water you can.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I got a lot of it out with the skimmer in running it pretty aggressively right now I'm gonna let the water level drop a bit while skimming and then too up tomorrow would that be okay? It's 830pm here right now so nothing is open and I don't have any salt water on hand right now

The solution to pollution is dilution. Water changes.
