Hi,
I think 75g tank is sufficient for a single chuck. I am no expert, but have been doing a lot of reading as I have recently aquired my first chuck. (red back male, picollo) a couple of months ago, but it should be good.
I dont have any fake rocks but I do have a fake maluable vine that he loves to climb on as well as real rocks and a climbing branch to get closer to the heat lamp. The chuck's diet is more similar to
uromastyx than an iguana i believe. There is no need for animal protein and no need for a water bowl as they get their water from their diet. Here is a link to a care sheet. but basically, leafy greens, (turnip, mustard, collard ect) and berries are always good. Hope this helps.
