Temporary tank concerns

So I noticed a few days ago that my current tank was leaking. I had a 2.5 gallon marineland, one of the basic glass ones that comes in the standard sizes. I didn't really want to keep my boy in a leaking tank, and as it turned out my friend had a spare tank. Thing is, I have some concerns about keeping him in this tank.

For starters, it's a 1 gallon. I only want him in it temporarily, seeing as my parents are coming up in a couple weeks and I'll have them buy me a new tank, but in the meantime will it be a bad thing for him to have limited swimming room? Also, I have a 25 watt heater that I doubt will be any use in the tank. Is there any way to help keep the temperature in the tank somewhat decent for him?

1 Gallon tanks are fine for bettas but yours may feel a little unhappy because he is getting a smaller house. You can still use that heater as long as you can constantly keep tabs on the temp(hope you have a thermometer) or you can have your tank near a heat source.
