thats sad,
hopefully someone will come and advise better than me but i think to keep a single musk adult you'll need a minimum of a 3 foot tank.
hopefully i'm wrong and someone will say something to cheer you up.

If it were 2ft x 2ft, and 1ft deep (can't say I've seen one this shape though, then you'd be OK for a single small terrapin, but anything smaller in any way is going to be too small to have enough water.

Maybe if you checked free ads, ebay, gumtree, etc for a pre-owned one to keep the cost down (and you get mam on your side to have a quiet word on your behalf) then you may be lucky but as they say, "if at first you don't succeed, try, try, try again".
Don't push your luck to far and blow your chances, slowly grind him down to a submission.
I will be advising you to get yourself in trouble soon so I'll leave you with that.
