Hi guys, just wondering if anyone can help me identify this as shell rot or not. The brown patches are not soft, nor do they smell, but they appear to be pitted.
Here are pics

Won't let me add a pic, says the board is at its limit for uploads. But here is a link to another site where I was able to add photos.

It looks similar to sheel sores. https://www.allturtles.com/turtle-first ... -in-shell/

Make sure the tank and water is clean and filtered. Have a look at the painted turtle care sheet as well for more guidance: https://www.allturtles.com/painted-turtle/
