take it to a vet...DUH...jeez people...

P.S. - Sorry buddy, from the sound of it your turtle is probably reallllly sick. How do you take care of him? How big is your tank? How much water is your filter rated for? How often do you change the water? Do you have a place for the turtle to dry off completely? A Basking lamp? UVB flourescent lighting? Get back to me.

Jamie,

Have you taken him to a vet? How's he doing?
