That is a very good question. I will Log this. I found a lot of good info in a book by the turtle and tortoise trust.

I start my tortoise bath water at about 95F and sometimes it is slightly warmer. I use an infrared temperature gun to verify.
After about 20min the water has cooled down into the 80s and soak time is over.

This temperature has worked very well for me and many others.

There is no single way of doing things. If 95F soaking water makes you uncomfortable then you can choose a cooler temperature. However, to say that 95F is too warm is inaccurate.
