as for power heads i personally recommend hydor Ks but thats my opinion.
also, the problem with 90gal saltwater tanks is there height, the standard size 90 is the same size as a standard 75 (except for the height)
this isnt so much of a problem if your are doing FOWLR, however if you want corals you are going to have problems getting good light penetration unless going metal halides which = $$$ as well as having to buy other equipment like a chiller which = $$$ which = +electricity bill lol.

i do NOT intend on discouraging you from doing a salt water tank, i am only saying do research. lots and lots of research. when you think you've done enough, do more research. this will SAVE you money, as well as give you a chance to save money up. you dont have to buy top of the line equipment, but get something worth while and learn how to do it right the first time... its well worth it.

The turtles will only be put outside during the summer. Once winter hits they are coming back inside. I would also feed them just like I do now. I've been reading and will keep reading about SW. I do understand that it takes a lot of researched and money and thats fine with me but it will wait until I get a job lol

BTW, when you clean that tank out, you'll need to clean the heck out of it and all those rocks need to be gone, also make sure that no copper based products have been used on the tank as it'll seap into the seams and then when you add sw to it it'll leak out of the seams and damage your corals and some fish.
