I have a couple spotted turtles clemmy's glutatta. I have a 3 year old with seven adults in a temp tank until I finish their habitat. I noticed him(the 3 year old) alway's on the basking rock with eye's closed. I seperated him thinking he was getting bullied when eating his eyes are clear when he opens them (not very often then he scratches at them, he is not having bubbles coming out of his snout.
But when he is on the basking rock under a powersun 100w bulb he looks sick sometimes I have to check to make sure he is alright. he will eat a little reptomin.when I give him worms when he strikes at them he misses like poor eye sight and he will keep his eyes closed under water a lot.
Please any advice I think you in advance.

You were right to seperate him in case it was infectious. The most common problem would be some sort of localized or systemic bacterial infection which could require antibiotics, especially since basking hasn't worked for him. Basking or exposure to higher than normal temps is the only thing a reptile can do to put their own immunities into overdrive to fight off infection. If that doesnt work in a reasonable amount of time he needs some medicine. Keep an eye on the others.
