I am not certain but I think the bulb is 75 watts (and it is designed for turtles).

First thing to factor is safety - your turtle or any water splashes should not be able to come in contact with the bulb. Second, the temperature of the basking area only needs to be about 10 degrees warmer than the water, so 85-90F.
