Is your turtle otherwise healthy? It isn\'t actually coming out of his body, is it? I\'m assuming it\'s from the area around the tail. Is it white/translucent and wispy and it is visible in the water but not really out of it? If so, it sounds like he\'s starting to shed some skin (turtles will shed their skin and shells as they grow).

THank you so much!!
That is exactly what it is. I was just worried that it might be fungus or something so that is really reassuring!!!
