I have a young friend, my ybs. In the last couple of weeks I’ve noticed pink/reddish spots on his scutes. I’ve done a lot of research since this is my first turtle. I realized I didn’t have the proper equipment for his home. Couple of months ago I bought a 40gal tank with Aqueon filter included. Been feeding him mostly Wardley reptile sticks and freeze-dried mealworms. I clean the tank at least every two weeks. In the last week or so I noticed the spots. I’m concerned about taking him to the vet because my friend caught him in the wild and then I adopted him and moved out of his native region. He used to bask until a few weeks ago other then that he seems the same as before. Eyes look clear. I just don’t know what to do, please help!
