My turtle has brown spots on his back legs

By the way, does digging indicate that the female turtle is ready to lay eggs? She's only about 1.5 to 2 years old. Isn't it a bit too early?

Please give me some suggestions. I'd really appreciate it.

And my little one wasnt basking enough so she couldnt dry out which cause some or the spot problems. So i take her out at night and put her in a box. I put her back in the water in the morning. That seems to be working.

I used to have a small basking area for them, so most of the time their feet didn't get completely dry. Maybe that caused the brown spots originally. Anyway, I bought a large cork bark recently. Hope that after he heals, the biting won't happen again. Otherwise, I might have to separate him forever.

Two weeks ago, he had a very mild pneumonia. I managed to cure him at home by making the tank warmer. He has gained back his appetite although seems to be a bit weak. I put him in the water when feeding him, and he seems to struggle when swimming. How can I help him gain back his strength? Is it bad to keep him in the dry tank for more than a month? I feed him every other day and let him stay in the water for about half an hour. On the days that I'm not feeding him, I try to put him in the water too, for about 10 minutes or so.

How big is the tank?
I read turts get terretorial.
Do each of them have their own
basking area? Hiding areas?
Also, I read changing the terrain
around significantly helps.

Now I'm not too concerned about the cause. I just want the wound to clear up soon. I've been told that my turtle's recent weakness is due to him being dehydrated. Putting him back into water would slow his healing process. So, I'm not sure what to do. I think I will place him in the water for 12 hours and out of water 12 hours every day.
Does anyone have suggestion? Sandi, sounds like my experience is very similar to yours. How are your turtles doing now? Has the wound completely recovered?
