Fill the tank with water but only just enough so that the nostrils of the turtle are just slightly above water level when they stand on their hind legs. Larger turtles can be in deeper water. Your tank will also need an ultraviolet lamp centered on the basking rock. A filter is also needed but rated for small animals such as newts.

Besides pet stores you can also consider private breeders or those listed on reptile discussion forums. These are usually people who know more about reptiles and turtle care than the average pet shop employee. They will also be able to tell you what you specifically need to care for them.
