Thanks; I didn't think they would, I just fret over these sort of things anyway. :D lol. I'll start off with not too much water, and build it up slowly, just to make sure!!
Thanks again,

I think as long as they don't havea probem getting to land they should be ok. Depending on how much land they have now, they might feel cramped if they want to spend much time on it and you might need to give them a cave or something to hide under.

Yes, thanks. I've built up rocks on either side out of the water, and I will have a couple of those terrestrial plants coming out of the water to give them another land space. They've been in a day now, and as far as I can see, they really like it! :D In their old tank they stayed still for long periods of time and just la their heads on the gravel, but they are strutting about, swimming about and climbing about as if they own the place! (Which I suppose they do.) :D
Thanks very much for your help. Very much appreciated. :D

At petsmart you can get a 10 gallon tank for only 9 dollars (but it has no hood). Just a suggestion on getting a bigger tank...
