if you're getting a hatchling/small tort you don't need such a big water dish, if thats what its for, and tinies need to be able to get into it so it needs sinking or having shallow sides. If its for food then a slate or similar is better as again the tort has to reach the food and they don't eat like dogs from a dish but rather sit among the food if not on it. Bigger torts are fine with a dish but babies have tiny necks and heads, they need to tear their food with their claws so have to get at it. As for your combined bulb then go by the temp on the surface as to the height, to low and it will be to hot, to high to cold and you want it around 32-34c with the room temp about 20c which will be your cool end temp.
