Should be good. When you put warm water in it might take longer to cool down though so you might want to set the water out tonight and just put in room temp water. The food sounds okay, no wheat or anything so it should be fine.
If he still doesn't want to eat you can try soaking the food in a bit of garlic, they usually can't refuse it (too yummy).
But as Choclate said, it could be parasites as well so if he does poop make sure it is the same color as the food you're feeding him as well as there's nothing white or stringy attached. If he's swelling anywhere that could be another sign. Keep a close eye on him and I'd suggest a heater if you can get one.
