Size is fine, although if you are getting a baby you may want to partition it until it grows to reduce stress.

Heat mat should be anyway between 1/2-1/3 the floor size of the tank

Sorry, I meant you should also use a thermostat with the heat mat otherwise they can get extremely hot. A simple on/off mat thermostat should do (widely sold in reptile shops/online)
