Gary one of the best idea's I have seen in a long time regarding an issue so many have in this hobby, one of our unfortunate side effects in keeping darts happy is creating the perfect environ for roach species. I tried this and nabbed 3 adult roaches in 1 tank and 1 in another. I have flooded tanks to remove them which is a real PIA but effective, this is a great non toxic way to remove them without disrupting and established viv.
