My small RES has sort of a dry dark mold or powder growing on it's shell. When he's wet the spots get darker, when dry they tend to fade.

I'm concerned its some sort of fungus and wondering if there is some necessity to treat the shell.

Give it a good cleaning with a soft brush like a mushroom brush, if it keeps coming back, I would probably treat for a fungus, do a search for fungus to find other threads about how to do it. :D

Here is the search page, put the word fungus on the first line and click search. http://www.allturtles.com/msgboard/search.php
