I would make sure the tank is always kept clean, so infection doesn\'t set in. Just keep an eye on it for now.

one scratch is about half a inch long and is like in a side of a circle shape on corner of the turtle its less then a centimeter long and its deep enough to see like some white where it is. Is it possible that this is from the other turtle\'s claws?? or maybe something else in the tank? i have noticed before like one turtle would be in the corner of the tank and the other would be kicking on top of him so i would always move it
