Hi there,

Could you describe the what the shedding/fungus looks like? Turtles normally shed (I\'m not sure how often- I\'m a relatively new RES owner myself)and my own RES sleep on a peice of wood about an inch below the water level. They are still small, about 2 inches across. However, I have noticed them snoozing submerged with heads above water. I doubt it\'s anything to be concerned about. Good luck with them and congrats to the new world of turtle keeping!
