    Welcome to the Forum and very nice looking frog. I would be careful of heat pads as these frogs like to burrow and they can very easily burn if their skin comes into contact with the pad. As well, your soil looks on the dry side-do you mist regularly? I have three African Giants myself, and they are amazing frogs to have. Does yours have a name?

    How cold? I keep mine at room temperature year round, and my house can be quite chilly, especially in the mornings. It slows down their metabolism, and they may dig down a bit more, but otherwise, I haven't experienced any negative outcomes. If you would really like heat, a low wattage heat lamp over one side of the tank would be sufficient. Your frog will decide where it wants to park and can go back and forth if need be. I would keep the water on the non-heated side, otherwise it will evaporate too quickly and your frog looks like he or she enjoys a good soak! Then again, who doesn't?

    Welcome to the Forum. That's a nice frog. I think you will find lots of info and fellow froggers who keep Pixies. There is a care article with a link on the left-hand column (African Bullfrogs) and an entire sub-forum dedicated to Pixies.
