Taking care of your turtle's overall health.

The answer is not really. Males especially can be aggressive, so I would choose to keep him separate from another turtle. With female RES, you never know but there's always a risk.

I can't be certain if it is fungus from the picture, but it likely is. Mineral deposits sometimes collect around the ridges and might look like that. Fungus also doesn't make the white spots soft either as it only infects the top layer. viewtopic.php?f=5&t=10839
