First get a good book like Iguanas for Dummies by Melissa Kaplan it explains everything in the book.

your making him sick ,
Do you have the right Heating , UVB lighting? ( from the sun )
this lighting helps them digest there food.

Has he been eatting anything? are you still feeding frozen veggies? get rid of them. go to a farmers market ans buy like collard and mustard greens , with like snow peas and or green beans. for starter staple diet.

a 29 gallon is not what he will be living in forever they get big and there additudes can be pretty agressive as well. taming is a hole other ball park right now i would worry about your iguana being sick ...
have you been sprinkling pure calcuim with 3D on his food?
if not he may be starting MBD..
I would take your iguana to the vet. ( make sure its reptile vet )

also try soaking him. misting helps but it wont do it. by the way your saying shes skitish and such im sure he will not like it the first time. soaking will help hydrate him.

Taking it back to the vet will just kill him. taking him to a vet and getting that book will hopfully save him.

Gook luck keepp us updated
