Hi, my fiancee has been interested in getting a turtle. We're new to turtles (not even sure we'll get any yet), but we're looking for some info.

What is a good beginner turtle? She'd lke something relatively small (important) and something kinda pretty. She was thinking about a painted...no sliders.
Also, everywhere I look, sliders seem to be in water tanks with tiny basking spots. Is there some speices that is more land based that could do with a smaller water zone? FYI we'd be doing an indoor aquarium setup. Could we make some sort of half land/half water set up?
