Nope! Turtles need larger tanks than that, and would likely eat/maim your fish.

most turtles need some kind of dry land to perch on, as well. a baby turtle, you could get away with in a tank that size, but it'd still try to eat your fish. if you want a turtle, you'd have to keep it in a fishless tank.

Turtles are HIGH maitenance and HIGH cost animals to keep. They live a long time, and you need to do a lot of research... They get so abused since people don't realize they can cost hundreds just for a proper set up..

Even a baby turtle would take chunks out of your fish.
