Question clamped fins

is there anything i can do for clamped fins? besides wait?

it's a 10 gal tank and i did a 50% water change yesterday (before this happened) and i added the same normal stress coat conditioner i always have. i know what the cause is. my heater didn't keep temp and dropped 4 degrees during the night and i woke up to 3 clamped boys :[ i have the temp stable at 78 degrees now. and i have each of them cupped so that they don't have to swim much because they look uncomfortable and can't swim well. i also have a towel to keep it dark so they don't freak out as they seem to every time i look at them under it.

any advice??

Time and more time. You're doing everything right, keeping the temp stable now and keeping it dark. You can try seeing if they'll eat and start moving around a little. Otherwise, once they warm up, they should unclamp. If they remain clamped even after the temp stabilizes and stays warm, there may be another cause to them clamping up like that.
