I'm getting two small red ear sliders, and I have NO idea on what they need. How big should the cage/aquarium be? Also, what do they eat? What accesories do they like or need?

Of course you can look around this site for more indoor/outdoor setups.

with my 2 RES's I started with a 10 gal. tank since they were soooooo tiny and later moved up to a 40 gal tank for a long time and then a 75 gal. tank that they are still in now at age 4 I didn't want them to get used to a huge tank in the beginning fearing it might depress them when I upgraded the size and it was LESS room than they were used to. This way they are thrilled!!~~:)The girl sliders, (which both mine are~Mellow & Molly~, get much bigger than the boys ~ So there is that to consider too
