What kind of lighting did you use? I would suggest a reptisun or equivalent with components of UV A and UV B. Try a piece of cork bark for a temporary raft. In a crunch, I've used the styrofoam lid of an old beer cooler as a stop gap. I would lose the gravel and add small stones. Turtles leave a lot of fertilizer that you will need to siphon off.

A temporary dock could be made using four clay flower pots and placing (hot glue) a piece of acrylic or plexiglass on top. Make this your basking spot by placing a heat bulb or ceramic heater over the spot and raise the temp to about 85-90.

Good luck!
