Ive noticed recently on of my little red ear sliders(Billy) has got a whitish ring around his shell. It\'s towards the edges..I definitely don\'t think its good.. what should i do? I recently bought meal worms for my turtles, and sometimes they sink to the bottom of the tank.. so now my turtles are always picking at things at the bottom of the tank..I\'m worried that maybe the ring came from eating some feces or something.. any suggestions? The tanks definitely clean, but theres still going to be some feces at the bottom.. should I not feed them the meal worms? helppp

I read in an article that if you feed meal worms that you should make sure they were not raised on manure (cow poop), so you can feed the turtles the worms just not the manure raised ones, as for the ring, I\'m not sure what that would be, if you can post a picture it would be easier to tell, it might just be shedding.:D
