I emailed my vet, but she hasn't replied yet.

My turtle isn't showing any signs of illness, but I noticed pinkness in between scutes.

We have river rock on the bottom of the tank. Should I be concerned?

I used a q tip and rubbed against the scutes... it's coming off. Must be dye from the rocks. So relieved!

If it's a little pink, it might be some bacteria. You can wipe it off gently.
