A 5 inch sized turtle is too big for a gallon sized tank. They need more room to swim and the filtration needs more water than that for a turtle that size. I have a 5 inch male red eared slider in a 29 gallon aquarium and I consider that to be the smallest tank I would recommend.

You can keep your slider in a small outdoor pond stocked with small live feeder fish, small snails, and aquatic plants. You can also keep him in an 75 gallon plus indoor tank. You should always bring your turtle in for the winter to keep him from hibernating or from freezing to death.
