Is it normal for RETF to sleep at night?

I have had two adult male red eye tree frogs for just one week now, and I have noticed that they will sleep all day, as well as all night; sometimes two nights in a row!?

They are in a 20g currently, with sphagnum moss covered in magnolia leaf litter to avoid impaction. There's a water area, pothos throughout, and a few hiding spots provided by some drift wood.

Temps at night range from 60-67, daytime hot spot is 80-85, and ambient temp ranges from 70-78.

I've just noticed that one especially will sleep in one spot, and be in the same spot two days later, still sleeping.

I'm using a feed dish to monitor feeding, and some roaches and mealworms have gone, but not as many as I would have hoped. Maybe 5 total in a whole week.

They were at a (professional) pet store for 3 months, apparently CB but unsure, and they look as healthy as can be.

I've waken them up at night, around 1 or 2am, and they'll hop around for 3 minutes then go back to sleep.

Should I up the temps a bit? Add more humidity? Currently just spraying once a day, usually in the evening.

I'm just wondering if this is normal behavior or not...
