Moving betta to new tank with a heater without shocking him

Hi folks,

So I've had my new biorb going for 24 hours, and I have a biorb heater that I can put into it.

My betta is still in his current glass bowl, with water temp of about 73 F. I'd like to move him over to the biorb, and start up the heater, but I've heard that drastic temperature changes aren't so good.

Would the best strategy be to put the heater into the biorb, set it to 75F, and then put in the fish, and bring it up at something like one degree a day until it's around 78 F and leave it there? Is there a better way to do this? I would like to warm the little guy up, but without stressing him out.

That's actually a good plan, I would go with that. Make sure you monitor the temperature with a thermometer--the halogen light on the biOrb may run hot and add additional heat.
