My 5 year old RES is sheding his shell but the scales are not coming off as fast as before. Some scales crack half way and the other part stays on.

Any advice?

Sometimes there are food and other things in the water that will hold them on there. Othere times it\'s just because they are growing slower. Your best bet is to slowly clean thier shell with a soft bristle tooth brush and then see what happens. Good Luck
