Excellent work there!
The increased volume can only help. If the filter was removed on Tuesday though, bear in mind any bacteria you did have will have died so you are starting the cycle afresh from yesterday.
Certainly, I'd be doing 25% daily water changes until you can grab a test kit so we can see what levels of ammonia and nitrite you are contending with. A lot of work I know, but very important for the next few weeks at least if he is to do well. You can throw in some bunches of Elodea for cover. They can just float around as no need to be planted and will make him feel a bit more secure.
Hope that helps
