Give it a heat source and it will do much better. As with many asians, their is the misconception out there that they just need to be kept cool. They do need access to cool but do MUCH better when they have access to a warm spot. I keep mine between 73 and 75 degrees but they always have a warm area around 80 degrees. I would prefer to give them access to an even warmer area but I find it hard to keep one side down to 73-75 if the warm spot is too warm. All of mine spend a lot of time on the warm area and not just when digesting food.
I would also give them a humid hide if your going to keep them on paper towels. More than many other species, they need to feel secure in my experience to do well so I provide them with dark hides and deep substrate to burrow in.
I would make some changes in your setup, leave it totally alone for a couple weeks and then leave a large live fuzzy moust in over night.
