Great photo! There is a whole ecosystem on that tortoise's shell!

Hi Joe,
If you got this fellow wouldn't you think OMG he needs a good clean to get all of that off his shell and let the UV in? I would. But despite all of the 'coat' s/he looks so healthy!

Fantastic picture,
Elaine

Very interesting Elaine...does UV pass thru all that algae ?..Musks aren't known for basking unlike sliders and spend most of the time on the bottom but a basking area should still be provided,as this picture shows they do bask...I've a cracking picture of a map Turtle that is so cover in algae it looks like it's wearing a green fluffy coat..
