Looks fine to me, except I would remove the gravel. It can cause impaction if accidentally swallowed and also can trap waste causing water parameters to fluctuate.
You should feed in the tank to minimize stress. If all is well with the tank they should be perfectly comfortable feeding in it. What are you feeding them?

I'd just like to point out that this is a good setup for a newt and even a small frog, but a TERRIBLE setup for an aquatic turtle... They should not be advertising for turtles.

my thoughts exactly I couldn't believe they advertised it for turtles not even a baby turtle would be alright in it I kinda feel bad for buying it because it pretty much endorces it but I was on a budget

Yes, it's disappointing. Many pet oriented companies seem oblivious to the actual needs of some pets. Pet shop employees often don't know too. But they are only human, I guess.

Love the profile pic btw.
