No, I just set the cup aside and do the water change as fast as I can. The water temp shouldn't drop too fast.

Ah okay. I was wondering. I acclimate during 50% changes too. I'm super paranoid about shock

I've never seen any of my bettas suffer from temperature shock even when I do 100% water changes. I only use my hand to roughly match the temperature before I put them back in.

Mine mope for a few seconds and then quickly go back to swimming around and checking on everything.

A temperature change of 1 or 2 degrees will not kill a healthy fish. In fact I actually do large water changes with cold tap water to stimulate spawning with some of my betta species.

Floating him around and introducing water over a period of ten to fifteen minutes should be more than enough if you are particularly concerned.
