red eared slider

i came home tonight to find the small red eared slider turtle was peeling something fierce.  i am afraid there might be something wrong, but when i did a search, it is normal for a growing turtle to shed some. it is a sign they are growing.  but since he is so little and with other inhabitants now, in the river tank i made up.  i was concerned.  he is with rock, or rather stones, with smooth edges, and about 7 inches of water with a filter and heat lamp.  he is in with about 4 white cloud, 4 zebra danio and now a crabby crab of some fresh water type.  i wanted northern pike minnow, but they would grow too fast for the turtle to keep up.
