Looks nice. What are you using for her ramps?

Thank you, steve.
Well, the ramps were actually built by my father, having in mind the Zoomed dock that I gave him for reference. Bobo had started to chew on that dock with a vengeance a few years ago, so I just couldn't use it anymore. She had it for almost a year and then suddenly she decided it's so tasty that she just had to tear big pieces out of it and simply eat them. :lol: So my father took some light coloured plastic boards, used a torch (I think) to bend them to the right angle, cut the sides of a black plastic storage box to fit the boards (in order to give :msgreen: some traction when going up, of course) and then connected them with little pieces of steel, I believe you can see them better in the last two pics. I only saw the finished product, so I have no pics during the building process... He initially made the little dock, and when Bobo grew larger, he made the one that she currently uses in order to climb. The smaller dock is now her bed/resting area :).

Thanks! She really likes it, and it seems that she's doing well overall, she constantly begs and is very active.
There is one thing I'm monitoring closely, she has a white, hard spot on her shell, well, more like in the scute. I haven't tried to brush it off yet, but I tried it with the fingernail and it seems...embedded there. I'll definitely keep an eye on it and hope it will go away when shedding. Don't really know what else to do.

There are two pics I just took, unfortunately I didn't catch her basking, I'll try to do that later or tomorrow. There appears to be more tiny white spots when she is underwater, she is beginning to shed, but the spot I'm concerned about is a little different, I think.
So... what could that be?

Very hard to tell what that could be. Is it a pit (and that's why there is a bubble over it)?

It seems a bit pitted, yes. I have pics with her shell dry, I'll be posting them later.

It looks like it could be a touch of fungus. Does it feel rough or brittle? The pictures are very helpful, thanks.

Thank you, steve, very helpful as always.
It feels a bit rough, and the shell is sliiiightly pitted. I have absolutely no idea how this could have happened, if it really is fungus, she has been basking for hours every day for the last half year, at least :(
What do you suggest I do? She seems to have begun to shed, every day I see more and more golden spots on her shell, she's basking, begging like crazy and happy otherwise.

If it feels rough, it might be a breach in the shell. Usually its a boney layer that flakes off, then scar up to heal.

So it's nothing to be very concerned about? That'd be great news, still makes me wonder how this happened.

Well, I wouldn't say there is nothing to be concerned about and it needs to start healing.
