Default Re: Cockroaches in Vivarium - Is this plan OK?

This reminds me of when I used to live in Florida. I had a converted 55 gallon viv that I thought was going well. One night I shined a flashlight into the tank and there were Palmetto Bugs literally doing laps around the tank. It was so gross and I felt so bad for my frogs. Who knows how long they had to put up with that. I tore the whole tank down and started over. Good sterilization of everything that goes in the tank will eliminate some of this problem, but not all, especially if, as Kmc mentioned, you have an accompanying infestation in the house. I wish you the best in solving this problem. Sounds like you have some pretty good suggestions in this thread though putting poison in a tank with my frogs would make me super nervous, "poison" dart frogs, notwithstanding :-)
