75 gallon will suffice for a short time, but as they grow they will need a larger enclosure.
Lighting you will have to play with and see if you can achieve the proper temp gradient. If you are using the MVB, you dont really need the tube UVB but just be sure to stick to the mfg's recommended distances.

"What I'm getting: Tempgun, Mazuri Tortoise Diet, Repashy Uro Dust, MinerAll."
I would suggest a good digital thermometer for measuring your ambient temps... also, I strongly suggest against using the uro dust. I noticed a decrease in appetite and odd sized fecals when mine ate it. I have stopped using it entirely. I have also only fed a small small amount of mazuri pellets. MinerALL I use once a week.

As for substrate, you can also use pool filter sand or washed, sifted playsand.. but ONLY if the Uro is over 6" in total length, to decrease the risk of impaction. If it is under 6" I would use paper towel, newspaper, or slate as your substrate.

Just have patience and test test test temps until they are correct. Better to have everything setup before you get the Uro. Also make sure you got a good varied diet for them as well.
