Try covering up the sides of the tank, or even getting him something larger since chances are he's gonna outgrow that 30 gal faster'n you can say "crickets". The nose rubbing is not likely to stop unless you either get him a larger enclosure or cover up the sides, and even then he might still do it.
As far as diet and temps, I personally can't help you out there - I've never owned basilisks, I just know these kinds of lizards like lots and lots of space. Have you tried other forums? Hopefully someone else here can help you out more than I can.
