i've heard if turtle are at hatching sizes there shells tend to be soft. so you need to give him more UVB source and more calicum for it to harden on it own as he grow. :D

the filter, i just clean it out with paper towl when i change the tank water and stuff.

Stone rocks are cheap go to your local state park and get some out of a creek or a river and boil them in hot water and rinse them off before you put them in the tank with the turtle.
