I forgot to mention, I did fill up a nylon stocking with the old gravel. I didn't bury it, I just let it sink to the bottom and it is sitting on top of the new gravel. Maybe it wasn't enough.

This morning I had 0 ammonia and still .25 nitrite. Yesterday morning I had .50 nitrite. Looks like it's slowly getting better. No fish were gasping at the top for air and all fish were accounted for this morning. I did a small pwc (about 10%) just to hold them over until I get home from work. I will probably do 30%-40% again tonight. My main goal is obviously not to lose any fish, whether that means doing 1 pwc or 10 pwc's.
