Your tank would be OK for a starter, but you'll need a bigger one in about 18 months time at most, and you will have to take the hood off as it needs to be completely open topped for maximum ventilation.

If the cats are a problem then you'll need to make a wire mesh lid instead.

You need an 8-10% UVB and a compact is better than a tube, you'll also need a spotlamp for heat, or use a MVB which provides heat and UVB in a single lamp.

Have you read a caresheet on Sliders The Terrapin Tank - www.TerrapinTank.co.uk -?
