I have basically had a Yellow Belly Slider dumped on me, long story but now I have the turtle I plan on looking after it properly. I'm not experienced so need advice.
The turtle is around 7" (shell head round tail) the current tank is way too small so I have a new one on order. The turtle has never had any type of UV light, it basically stayed under water next to the heater all the time. I have bought a UVA lamp and have that set up a UVB has been ordered.
The turtle loves the new lamp and has been basking all day nearly, it's the first time I've seen it dry and I've noticed cracks and flakyness in its shell? Will that repair itself with the correct treatment?
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
