Somethings wrong with blitz! Please help

Blitz had his fins torn by my adfs a week ago. Now hes always laying on the bottom of the rank under a plant. Whenever i go up to him he swims happily to me though. There are no signs of fin rot or anything! Im really worried about him. He currently lives a 10 galln with two pygmy corys and 3 adfs. His temp is at 76. I domt know about the water perimeters tho. I also have an outbreak of brown algea. Could that contribute to this? Hes in some stress coat too but its not helping.

Right raise the temp to maybe 80* F. Does he have horizontal stripes on him?

Hes kinda dark colored on his body, but i don't see any stress stripes. I just did a 30% water change. Unfortunately my heater isnt adjustable. Im trying to save up for one that is, but there really expensive. Im planning on buying one with bday money this weekend. Is there anything i can do to keep his tank warmer?

Put a towel over it. Keep a bit open so there's still O2.
