Hi from UK
welcome to a great site,ive not been joined long but glad i found this site.
My daughter has a turtle,he is a musk turtle and he is called Myrtle,he is lovely so if i can help,yes my daughter has Algae in her tank but she cleans it often,its a normal thing to have in tanks if they are healthy but not sure how to get rid of algae permanetly,as i say she cleans it off when she thinks it needs it.
He even has algae on his shell and she uses a baby soft toothbrush to clean it holding him by his sides,cos we read it should be cleaned off as it may mask any shell problems should they arise,sorry not much help on alage problem,they do have a topic on aquatic turtles in list if you have a look on there
