I would do a larger change to get the ammonia down. Ammonia in the water is way more damaging then a quicker shift in parameters. Just match temp well.
Actually I do have aquarium salt on hand. I used to have sevral saltwater tanks, I kept the salt for raising brine if I needed to.
Oddly the one on her face disapeared. Had a panic moment when I couldent find her. Shes found the cleverest hiding spot on the tank! I bought a wood peice with java from petco... Oh a year or so ago. Its concave, and fits in a corner. The gall had got under it and turned upside down so her back was resting on the twine! It amazes me how smart they can be!
Hopefully I can go to a LFS
tomorrow. If not, I will have to order online. I am working my prime to death lately!
Edit : after a gallon water change ammonia was back at 0. Possibly I am blind, or I mistested. Am taking a sample to all three lfs
tomorrow if open
