Nah, leave the temperature as is. If you don't have a towel, maybe an old shirt?

A day or two. You'll of course want to peek in now and then and see if he'll take food at feeding times.

I'd check on him tonight and tomorrow. If he passes due to the shock (which could happen) you'll want to know so that you can remove him.

Don't kick yourself too much, either. This is a learning experience for all of us.

good news - I took the towel off briefly to remove any uneaten food and re-dampen the towel and he started to swim around a bit, but I have dampened the towel again and re-covered him for today. will check him again tomorrow and see if he wants to eat.

Excellent! Sounds like he'll pull through, then.

If doing frequent 100% changes and re-acclimating him every single time seems like a lot of work (and it is), you may wish to consider eventually picking up a large tank. My two bettas are each in 10 gallons with filters (which I admit is excessive), but I only need to do a 50% change once a week, and the fish can stay in there for that.

I dont think I will be getting a bigger one for a while.
We are in the process of selling our house and anything could happen at any time and getting another tank would be just more to have to move when we go back to the UK, where everything is cheaper.
but I will try and re-acclimate him on every 100% WC
