Exclamation Vivarium heat crisis!!!!!!!!

Ok, I have one Leo in a 10 gallon tank (20 inches long), the apropriate temperature should be 84-86 F but at the moment its 70-71 F, my tank is to small for a heat lamp as it would heat the whole thing. Ive tried a heat mat inside the Viv taped to a wall but it dosent make any difference, ive tried it taped to the bottom underneath the Viv, it feels warm on the floor directly above it but dosent heat the rest of the Viv properly. If I dont act soon my Leo will get a resparitory infection and die. What should I do?
