http://www.resoasis.com/ is a very good site that has a lot of info to help you out. The quick answers are that RES can grow to 8 - 10 inches or more. Think bigger than your outstretched hand. They can live decades as well so it will a long commitment if you want to give it the best care. A 10 gal is OK when they are young (couple of inches) but they recommend young/juveniles to be in a 15 - 30 gals. Some people have a 20 gal Long tank. Adults need 50 gals or more. Thats for 1 turtle. I have a baby RES in a 10 gal and its fine for now. Prob for a year or so.

:hi i hope someone can help me
:when i was younger i had a box turtle but not for long (i couldn't take care of it so i gave it away) now i was in the pet store the other day and they are selling baby turtles from the pics on this site i think its a slider i have to go take a closer look. my question is how big do they get i heard what ever these turtles are the don't get big also will a 10 gal tank be good enough for 1??? and whats good for them to eat??? thanks alot
