Is it possible for the shells to itch? Spunky\'s taken to rubbing up against the tube-thingy on his filter(which makes a lot of noise when you\'re trying to sleep), and I was wondering if the shells itch when they are about to shed their scutes and he\'s trying to rub them off. He\'s about doubled in size since I got him and he hasn\'t shed the first scutes yet, so I was just wondering...

That could probably be it.Try a DR.TURTLE calcium water treater that could help.
