Default Hey , I have a problem with my pacman frog

Hello guys
I bought a pacman frog 2 days before.In the pet store he ate in front of me one cricket but since I have him in home , he has only ate 1 cricket.His terrarium dimensions are 25cmx40cmx12cm.
I use forest moss and plantation soil.I keep the humidity at 80 % .The temperature is between 18 and 20 celcius,(I think its a little bit low but I cant go to the pet store until tuesday)
I tried to move the food with a tweezers in front him for some time but he attacked the tweezers!
Now I have him in a little place 20cmx10cmx5cm with 4 gut loaded crickets but he havent eat any of them yet!
please help me!
thank you

Sounds like the temperature of the enclosure is the cause behind this, as they require at least 24-27'c. So up the ambient day time temperature to about 27'c and have a lower night time temperature of around about 24'c.

Well personally I think its a thing that requires attention as soon as possible. What are the ambient room temperatures?

the ambient room temperature is around 20-25 celcius , but I think the humidity in the terrarium is making the temperature to drop :/
