I only keep mine indoors for a few weeks before and after hibernation, so I use a minimal setup. When outdoors I have about 80 sq ft of pen space for 4 adults.

But you can find pictures of indoor setups here:

If you are going to keep your tort indoors all of the time I strongly recommend you use something larger than the 50 gallon rubbermaid listed in the caresheet. These are fairly active torts, and 8 sq ft of floor space would be well used. If you must go smaller than that, try to make the space interesting by creating levels, tunnels, etc with boards, pieces of slate and so on.

Good luck!
