I have a hatchling red ear slider and he is in a tank that is only like a couple gallons and a quater of it is has rocks in it, I can only fill the tank like 3 inches is that okay? it seems like not enough water and if it is okay for now when should I move him to a bigger tank? also is it okay to feed him crickets? He really likes them!!!!

Depends I am pretty sure it is ok the rule is ten gallons for every inch. You can never get a big enough tank for your turtle. I would get a bigger one as soon as i get the money:D I heard crickets are fine to feed ur turtle. good luck with your hatchling

Its fine to feed them crickets, but not to often, his staple diet should really be pellets. You might want to look into investing into a 75 gallon tank or bigger males tend to get between 7-9 inches and females 9-12 inches. 75 gallon would be a minimum for a female.
