I agree he is too hot if he is holding his wings away from his body.
When a bird is sick they will often times spend much of their energy trying to stay warm, that is why you will sometimes see a sick bird puff up, they are trying to retain body heat but too hot is not good either. You say he is in an aquarium type room, do you mean he is in something that is closed on 4 sides, where is the ventilation on the top? Does the heating pad cover the entire bottom, if so you may want to try moving it so it only covers half, that way the bird can move off of the heated part if he feels too warm.
