Quick Injured Convict Question

So yesterday went to feed the fish and noticed my "tank Boss" wasn't waiting at the surface with the others. So i check the hiding spots and found the poor guy stuck behind the internal filter, so I quickly helped him. I noticed he lost a few scales and hurt a fin. He seems to be alright just a little upset.

Question is will doing 48hour 5Gallon water changes (on a 65Gallon Tank) help him recover faster, and will bumping up the heat from 78 to 80 help also.
It is an established tank so my water parameters are good and he is the only male cichlid in the tank.

I have a QT tank but its in use right now so that wont work. Just want to help him out if I can
