I think I read one time the smallest breed of tortoise is the egyptian tortoise. I know russians stay kinda small.

by tortoise box I guess you mean those new zoo-med wood setups? I would suppose it might work indoors if you had a UVB and heat sources. But, I dont know if you could ever keep the humidity right for a tortoise in one of these things.

I am pretty sure those tortoise things from zoomed are pretty small, I would only put one.

Honestly, I think egyptians can be hard ot find in the USA (I dont know where you live). I would think you would have better luck finding a russian. The UVB and heat can be bought at any pet store, probably 50 or 60 bucks for both bulbs and two fixtures.

A Box Turtle. Very similar to a Tortoise, but they do need a little water area.
