I wouldn't worry too much about it if it's that short of time. When I used to have mine in 1g containers there were many times I'd forget to add the conditioner before I put the Betta back in after cleaning. I'd add the few drops as soon as I remembered, I haven't lost any of them yet. As I said my females play in the new, untreated water when it's being added to their tank so short term exposure isn't going to be too harmful, IMO.
