I just got a musk turtle a week ago and since I've had him his rear end floats all the time.He is never flat on the bottom or when he's swimming it seems like his rear end gives him trouble by floating higher than his body.He was neglected before I got him so that may be part of the problem.Could someone tell me what they think is wrong with him and what I can do to resolve the problem?Thank you
