    Well the smallest turtle is the speckled padloper tortoise, but they're not available as far as I know :p

    The smallest you're likely to be able to get in captivity would be either a mud or a musk turtle. However, just because they're available in captivity doesn't mean they're easy to come by. Also, don't mistake smaller size for easier care. They're just as challenging as any other turtle, just with less space requirements. I would think you could fit one in a 30 gallon though.
