So I recently broke down to 55 gallon reef tank and turned it in to a little turtle tank. Thought I'd sign up for a forum to see if I'm doing this correctly I have a 50 watt halogen red lamp on his stone but does this look alright to you

A big question I have is lighting I have my reef lighting for my fish tank up and running is still it consists of two high output t5 someone full-spectrum another blue actinic I'm curious if that would be sufficient enough for daytime light I have a night time heat lamp

You need a uvb bulb and heat light but no need for night heat or light.

Welcome to the forum! The halogen could probably serve as a heat light/basking bulb. Depending on the kind, you need to be careful with the heat it generates. You will probably need new UVB lamps though.
