i just signed up on this site a minute ago, i found it googling around for info about my red eared slider...i'm familiar with forums, just not this one, i'm a noob, be nice please
so i just cleaned his tank out today & i noticed a lot of white filmy stuff around his neck & on his legs, i keep him in the bathtub while cleaning his tank & when i went to get him back out it was like hanging off of him. i tried to pull it, it was slimy, i ran a little bit of water over him from the faucet & it seemed to help, a good bit came off of him.
i just went out for a few hours, came back home, & there is some floating in his tank & around his neck again...i just read to give him a warm salt water bath for about a half hour, which i'm going to do now.
how can i tell if it's his skin shedding or if it's a fungal infection?
