Default Tank advise for sliders.

I got a slider for christmas, bit of a surprise and I wasn't really prepared so it's in my fish tank, seems very happy but it has little white marks on the edge of the shell, also I wasn't sure whether to leave the flaps open to keep humidity down or close them to stop evaporation?
Thanks for any help!

The tank shouldn't have any lid. Does it have the correct lights and temperatures?

I keep it at 25C with a water heater, it has a 30w fluorescent tube and a 100w ceramic basking light.

Is the tube a uv light? You use a ceramic bulb?
