I\'ve had a painted turtle for around 1 year now. His tank is set up properly and everything. Recently i noticed spots on my turtles shell,under the water it looks like gold paint, i took her out and dried her off and it\'s air bubbles under her shell. Why is that, what should i do please help!!

Sounds like it is just shedding. As they grow they can shed thin layers of the keratinous shell. As long as the shedding is thin layers you are fine.
