It depends on what is your breeding goal. Thick shell, better coloration or quantity?
You will do just fine with a undergravel filter and 1-2 sponge filters. That's a low cost setup for breeding TB. It just gonna take about 1 month to cycle the tank. Once the green algae develop on the glass, they should start breeding like crazy.
The key thing is just to keep the water parameter stable, don't over feed. I don't even do weekly waterchange, just top off with remineralized RO water.
UGF will help increase the soil buffering capacity.
I hope this is helpful for u
