my 2 year old redfoot lives in a rugged plastic sandbox that has a wooden roof on one end for hiding/shade and a wooden rack overhead for his light. the top stays open. to that roof is attached a ceramic heat emitter pointing diagonally downward into the sandbox, and directly underneath that, it is nearly 90 degress, but the temperatures drops radiating outward (the coolest area being the the mid to low 70s). i've seen him resting and napping in all areas of the sandbox, and i think that it's because he knows best what temperature he needs. i'm not an expert by any means but i think that what you have right now sounds about right, too.
