my turtle is 2.5 inches...and gets the recom dosage of light, vitamins, food..etc. and is in a well maintained tank!

(i think so!... though i keep trying to make it better :-)

for the last couple of weeks, i have noticed a transparent layer on one of his shell can be lifted a lil (seems like butter paper!! - though not slimy), and has perfect shell underneath.

its happening to only 1 turtle...and only at one spot... wondering if this is ALSO shedding?... do turtles shed from their shells? ..and if they do.. how come I am seeing only this one...and havent seen it on the others yet?

YOU ARE CORRECT!!!!!! he\'s only shedding. he\'s having a growth spurt. don\'t be concerned, he will shed his skin too.
