Hi, how big are your turtles? The rule of thumb for turtles in a tank is ten gallons of tank space per inche of turtle shell, that goes for each turtle, you are going to need a big tank... I would look in the paper or on ebay. I heard somewhere that a regular light bulb is fine for heat as long as it produces enough, but I am not 100 percent sure..I do know you need a uvb light (incase you didn\'t know) :) Becareful if you keep your turtles in a small area for too long then they can become aggressive and territorial. Good luck with them and finding a bigger tank.
