pellets are just fine if this is all that you feed him. just decrease that amount of pellets that you give him in a day.

welcome to the board:)

shedding is ok as long as it is not excessive..excessive shedding occurs due to overfeeding and hight water temp.
if ur temps are not higher than 79F and ur turtle is not overweight then there\'s nothing to worry about,,ur baby is just growing:)
