Minimum depth of the water should be a little more than the width of your turtle so he can right himself if he tips over. RES are strong swimmers, though, and more is better. At 3 inches, he will know what to do, so don`t be afraid to make it deeper (if you`re worried, you can do it gradually). He should have an easily accessible basking area so he can get out and dry off to bask under proper lighting.
