RES help

heres my 2 turtles Jabori and Stumpy Jabora-ive had Jabori for almost 10 years now and havent had any problems with his health,ever..then about 2 years ago i took in an unwanted res from my sisters freind who wasnt taking care of him and(note his name)hes in hard shape and missing all his nails on one paw..i didnt mix them in the same tank for space limitation reasons and ever since i got in Stumpy he began to develop a fungal infection and now Jabori has it too!!! right now im treating it with Betadine ,and Vitashell and in between im keeping them together in a tote to stay dry most of the day and swimming them in the tub for a few hours....can anyone help me maybe im not doin it right and a trip to the vet would suck....thanks.

Personally, I'd say a vet visit is in order anyway. Mainly just to verify it is what you think it is. That aside, frequent full tank cleanings and using something that is anti-fungal, like chlorhexidine or betadine with short periods of "dry docking" to let it work, sounds about right to me.

Wrapped in all of the promises, that no one seems to keep.

their shels are a good many hours drying here in the pics and then i added betadine which dyes them red!! so the worst part looks like the bellies! b/c theyre left alone for the pics but when i dried them theyre shells would turn white and i could pick those scales off and there shells look much better now though-thanks to the betadine and vitashell! ill get some mre tomorrow pics, i mean,and show the improvement! Normally the shell shopuldnt show any white or off color if theyre not in thrie shedding-whte on th shell indicates fungus and bacteria-anyways its not good. but they do look much better-i might hold off on th vet for now.



(excuse my bad grammmer for now!)
