right now i would recomend at least a 20 gallon long. with my turtle i have a small brick under neath a heat lamp (nothing special, they only need a 60 wat heat lamp) the water is about 4-6 inches deep. my filter is called a shark and it was designed for turtles because of how messy they can be. the only other thing you need is gravel for the bottom and preferably a scrren lid, oh yeah, and some food (small gold fish, reptile sticks, fruit, etc.).
