Salt is bad for cories... I'd get it out of there and do 2 back to back 50% water changes. Welcome to AA!

I think she put some aquarium salt in a Tupperware container, made the hole to let water in too big, put it in the tank... And one of the cories wriggled itself down in there and got stuck.

ahhhh.... I got it now sorry.

I agree with HD, you do not need the salt, and it is actually harmful to a fish like cories. I would pull it out, and also do a few large PWCs over the next 24 hrs.
