How can I prevent my rig from tangling?

As already mentioned, don't use that rig. To stop tangling generally, most people "hit the clip", that is to put the line in the reel clip and overcast so that the rig is projected forward as it hits the water. I also regularly use a PVA stick on the hook to increase it's attraction and also it helps alleviate tangles.

Sounds like you are using plastic tubing! Most fishing companies sell a brand of tubing that shrinks in hot water or I put mine in front of a boiling kettle for a few seconds and bend it to suit. Alternatively, you can also buy pre-formed tubing known as kickers and they do the same job.

Any suggestions for shrink tubing that shrinks at lower temperatures?

It's just heat shrinking tube used in the electronics industry mate (they use it to insulate wires). Google it buddy, it's nothing special.

The ones I have only shrink when I put literal fire on it. 

It's not shrink tube then buddy.
