Ill have to look up drip acclimation... It's probably why my new fish always looked sad for the first 24-36 hrs
20 is basically your 0. The only way to get it any lower is to have heaps of plants to consume it. 20s not bad but is a little high. Your fish will be happy and healthy at 20 so nothing to worry about. You will just need to up your water change schedule to keep them low.

It's up to you. They have been through 2 already so I'd wait till morning. 80ppm is much better than 160! It won't harm them if you wait over night.
