I've had Edna for a couple months, and in the last couple weeks her shell seems to be losing a lot of its green coloring and patterns. She shares a tank with her brother but his shell is unaffected. She has also had a lot of shedding skin around her neck and legs. Is this shell rot?

Hard to spot anything in the picture (there is a bit of movement), though it looks like shedding. If there are spots/blotches, then it's likely fungus.
