I have a koi pond in the front of my home. We have a few Red Eared sliders and I noticed the while on the edge of the shell. Any Suggestions on what my be going on?

Hard to be certain, but it's probably fungus because there seems to be a spread pattern.

How big is the pond? You'll have to dry dock the turtle for a couple of weeks if the treatment works.
