Alright guys I'm depending on you to solve a problem for me. I have a major alge problem. It's not in the tank but on Linus. I try to "bathe" him when I change their water, but he always hides his little head in his shell. Here is the problem. everytime I put him back into his enviroment, he sticks his head out and from under his chin all the way to the back of his neck he has alge. I don't know how to clean it off because he is so timid. He won't come out so I can clean him. How do I get him clean?

Sound like you need to cycle the water in the tank. The other thing that you could try too is to put the blue and white turtle pucks in the tank. One is calcuim and other stuff to help grow strong shells and the blue is more for sick turtles. You might want to cycle a bucket (depending on the size of your tank) every other day and use these pucks in your tank.
