The heater will make him perk up. Room AIR temp is always warmer than water. Water warms slower bc of its properties. Anyway, You might want to get some plants so he can explore and hide- gives him something to do.
When choosing plants, rub any plastic on pantyhose to see if it tears. If it does, so not buy it !! Bc it might tear your fish's fins o.O
You live in Ireland. So maybe HM's are less popular out there. One store here only got their first ever shipment in last week. So they're not as easy to get in some places.

mine defiantly isn't tail bitten, is yours still in that wee container? If so I think that is why he is tail bitten because he hasn't enough room in the tank!

1 (red) is the top tail fin
2 (green) is the lower tail fin
The Dorsal and Anal fins are marked. Unless there is a 3rd fin hidding behind the dorsal fin then he's a double tail.

He's a great looking double tail, very even and the body isn't all stumpy like some. And I believe his color would be described best as being "Iridescent" blue/green.

He looks healthy and happy, and I'm glad he's moving around a lot more!!

You have some really nice pics there!! He's such a nice color (though from the profile message you sent me earlier, Bow is nowhere near the same color as Ludendorff!! lol My fish is a multicolor, whereas Bow is definitely a blue! With some iridescence, but then most blue do :) )

that's what I meant, your's is lighter on the body and those photos of my Bow don't do him justice! See when you look at yours, does he show up different shade of colours? Cause Bow certainly does! Some times he is a light green, next he could show purple haha!
