>>I've put a lot of thought into all of this. It seems that since I've even got my iguana, it hasn't been feeling okay. When I first got everything set up for him, he wouldn't move. A whole day passed without him moving. He had water, food, and a source of heat/light (with all that UV stuff). I showed him around by placing him near all the stuff and sometimes splashing him with the water and holding food in front of him, sometimes just placing it there. Well, he never would move. He never went towards the heat source (which everyone says he will). He never even noticeably ate. He might have once got in his water. It makes me wonder if I'm really the reason for his feeling bad. I'm irritated now, especially that it seems that the store screwed me over by giving me a sick-ish iguana.

My guess is that he was very sick when you bought him. I would personally suggest returning him for a refund and contacting a rescue in your area. Herp societies are also a good outlet to contact for iguanas as they are often inundated with calls for them. If you wish to exchange, check out the link I posted for you. That will help you in selecting your animal.
