Greetings, many new owners of pac man frogs try to get their pet to eat immediately. It is an act of love, but these frogs can go without food for quite a while and relocating them to a new home often stresses them. They respond by losing their appetite. This is not a cause for concern. Stop pressuring him to eat for now, and give him space for at least a week, then offer him what you have been told is his favorite food. If that is crickets, be sure not to leave any hanging around in the habitat. If not eaten, they may begin to chew on him.

The temperature is OK, if a bit low. If you are in a region where winters are particularly cold and your house ambient temperature drops, a second mat may be useful, as long as there is somewhere in the habitat that is unheated. That way he can take advantage of the temperature gradient to suit himself and not overheat.

I cannot advise on the probe and its behavior, as I have never used that product.
