Sorry, but no turtles. I would do like I said, build a cool rock wall background, put corals in the upper third/half (depending on the lighting), and lots of fish. there are some totally awesome fish you can put in a tank that size....look here

As mentioned, if you want to build the tank for smaller variety of turtles, you can do that, but I would be very careful what I bought. I would consider it a waste as I am a fish guy, JMO.

I use to have baby snapping turtles, extremely easy to raise and they can be a lifetime pet. Dangerous when they're older though, before my dad became a naval officer and he was lower ranking they came in contact with a old snapping turtle, the thing bit through a shovel handle like it was butter aparently

Lots to add to that list. Triggerfish, tangs, look downs, multiple colonies of clown fish, even trumpet fish, squirrel fish, the list is pretty long.
