Note that it looks bright because my camera had flash, it is actually nearly pitch black!

To be honest some times mine dont always burry down completely,depends on tempts over night,if it mild then they wont burry down to much,i wouldnt worry to much just dont put any back ground heat on at night thats all,its colder outside at night than in doors so its fine!also keep the soil damp so humidity rises at night then everything will be fine
