Default Overheating

I moved back home from college for the break and was not able to bring my cage so i had to improvise and get a heater, he stays between 75-80 during the day however i believe he is getting over heated during the night. He just seems a little off and i was wondering is there anything i can do for him to help his temp go down.

5 degree difference is pretty big. I suggest you get a thermostat. A thermostat helps keep the temperature stable.

What is the temperature in the cage at night? Is there any light around the cage at night?
