My Baby RES is having shell issues. His shell had a chip in it by his tail and what looks like a little hole that dosnt go all the way through on his side. I have been treating it with Betadine. He is all alone in so I know he didnt get bit by another turtle. He also has some discolored spots. I\'m afraid its Shell Rot but He is acting perfectly normal. He eats ans swims all the time. I have a heat lamp and the water is @ 80 Degrees. Is he sick? What should I do. Is he ganna die. And I wanna get another turtle but i\'m afaid heck also get sick. What should i do?
