Hello,

We inherited 2 turtles from a friend who was moving. Piglet is a river cooter and Grumpy is a red-ear slider. They seem to be happy and are spunky. The problem is , though, that Grumpy\'s shell looks like it is molting and has white stuff on his legs. At first we thought he was doing just that... molting, but it\'s been going on for a while. We have a small area for them to get out of the water and bask, with heating lamp. Is it possible that he has a fungus? If so, how do we treat him and set up the tank so that he doesn\'t get it again?

thanks!
