Huge Pest Left a Little Present on My Tank

Post by MusaDjuan »

I need help or more like suggestions on how to deal with this case. The pest is my Cat, and I think he somehow got inside the tank and peed on the sand part of the substrate (i can tell from the smell and a sudden mess on the decoration). I don't know but I think my crab also dug near the peed location. In this case, should I bath my crab? I'm afraid the ammonium or some sort will mess it's gills etc, or I worried too much? If I need to bath it, should I use normal water or salt water for the best? Any ideas will be helpful. Thanks!

I think remove that part of the substrate for a clean or disposal and if there is a crab amongst it, give them a bath if they are not moulting.
