there's some pink webbing between my turtles feet?
doesn't seem like it is hurting him or bothering him, he walks around like normal.

also: can shell fungus lead to something worse?

Yes, it's normal to have pink tinge to it. If it concerns you, please post a picture of it.

Fungus can certainly lead to many other problems, most of them worse than fungus alone. Fungus can cause the scutes to retain/shed slowly, leaving more water and debris trapped under there which is a recipe for infections to start growing.
