Taking care of your turtle's overall health.

Ema , the water between 24-28 is a good range , since you only have a regular bulb what size is it. Is it one that produces heat? LED's and CFL's do not produce heat only incandescent or halogen type. What is the temp on the basking area? That can be 32c. If no where there and the lamp you are using is a heat type lamp you could lower it a little or get one size larger in watts. Then watch the temp and may help heat the water some until you set up the new tank with the water heater. Babies like consistent temperature.
May I ask where are you? That 80cm x 25cm is an odd size to me in the US.
