It's not a good sign that he is acting lazy and not wheeling. Often pet stores don't have a ton of knowledge about hedgehogs. Hedgies can be very particular about a light source. Some will ONLY come out if it's completely dark in the room...so the red light may be bothering him. I would think the first step would be to get a ceramic heat emitter bulb (CHE). Hedgie just needs heat, no red light. You also need to have a thermometer in the cage so you can know for sure what the temperature is. There are also thermostats that can be attached to make sure the heat is regulated within the correct range. If these changes don't yield improvements in your hedgehog the next step may be to visit a vet to be sure his health is not failing him somehow.

Also...is food and water intake normal? Have you seen any significant changes in his weight?
