I suspect that the overall ambient temperature is just too low. Why not replace that uv bulb with a spot lamp, low wattage, to actually warm the air.
My pacman is on a mat under a quarter of his tank. The mat is under 1" of substrate, the rest of the floor is under 2" of substrate. He goes on the mat when he wants to. & he feeds all the time.
This ain't rock 'n' roll- this is GENOCIDE!
