A 10 gallon is too small, even for a Pyxie that doesn't move much (most of them don't). I would say minimum 20 gallon. 72 degrees I think is too low. You might see slightly more activity and a better feeding response with warmer temps. I use a heat light in the winter, and no heating in the summer (my reptile room stays in the low to mid-80s most of the time. As far as substrate, I really like coconut fiber. It is really cheap, holds moisture really well, and doesn't cause impaction problems.
If you want lots of good information, check out FrogForum.net and find the Pyxie care sheet. There are also lots of threads that are great for pyxie-learning! Good luck!
