Also I have another question. We have two baby sliders which are in an aquarium with a floating rock so they can bask. We have been letting them bask with the aquarium light- 50 watt. Do we need a special light other than the aquarium light? Also we generally leave the light on during the day how long should the light be left on so they can bask?

They can bask all day, but they need a UVA/UVB light, I use a coil type fluorescent UVA/UVB full spectrum for their UV needs and a red heat light for night time heating, I actually leave it on all the time, watch the water splashes, they will make the bulb pop.
