My red eared slider turtle gets this on her too sometimes if its a little longer before I clean the tank. I have a old soft bristled tooth brush set back for her. When I take her out of the tank, I will just put her in the sink, and turn on the water. I just easily brush her shell with the toothbrush to get it off. Usually comes off with one stroke of the brush. Good luck!

If you look at turtles in the wild some have algae on them, its normal and not threatening. Just take a unused toothbrush and lightly brush it off once a week. Also change the water more often it could be the source of the problem all together

Perhaps also you can let their shells dry out for a while. I know
products are sold for shell rot. Turtles need to be able to get
out of the water for atleast an hour or so to let their shells dry out.

I think you would have to get another product for shell rot.
This is basically to treat the water. I also use the "shells"
that are conditioners and look like little turtles. That might
help to keep the shells strong but I am sure there is a product
for shell rot. Perhaps just google "shell ro in turtles" and hopefully
you will get your answer.t
