:Hey! I posted a few weeks ago about my turles shell haven't grayesh lines around all of the sections of the shell. Several people told me not to worry that it was just growth. The turtle (about the size of a quarter) acts fine, eats, swims. I rarely ever see it on its rocks out of the water anymore but she could just be doin it when I'm not in the room. Well, yesterday I notices the in two places on the top of the shell its white and when I got the turtle out of the water and felt it it was soft. Is this a fungus or something? The water is clean. Any ideas?

Sounds to me like a possible fungus growth...Be sure you have a turtle sulfer block in the water...Check with your local vet...I will look into this further...
