Hello,

I have Tortilla here a 6 monthish red foot. Been noticing a brown markings building on the plasteron and just wanted to confirm it's nothing to be overly concerned about.

Probably normal as fungus is white and chalky, and they do have dark coloration on their plastron. Could also be dirt or substrate stains.
