Can you use a fish tank heater for a turtle?

I have an old fish tank that I'm using for my turtle. I still have the heating element that I used for the fish. Can I use it for my turtle as well?

Yes, you can use a fish tank heater for a turtle. But you must make sure it's right for the size of the turtle's tank. You will  probably have to add a heat lamp for the turtle's basking area and the proper UVB lighting to keep your turtle's shell healthy.
