How warm should the water be for two turtles that are only a couple months old? and if they are a little cold what are some of the symptoms? should i get an underwater heater or just get a buld that is of a higher wattage? like 50 watts instead of 40...?

well, first thing is to get a thermometer. you NEED the water between 75-80 and the basking spot 7-10 degreese warmer. you should get a heater of some type because i dont think the light will heat up the water enough.
