This is really more of a general question, but I have a few decorations I had taken out of my tank, and they were on my counter for a few days. When I picked it up to put it back in a freshly cleaned tank, a freaking GIANT cockroach came out! I thought it was the only one, so I killed it (squished), and rinsed the decoration out for a while, and put it back in the tank.
Within seconds, about 10 baby cockroaches came floating out. . . I caught and killed them all, and I don't think any more will float out tonight, if they do, the filter will probably get it.
First question, Are cockroaches dangerous to fish?
Also, a different decoration got sprayed with roach killer stuff, I rinsed it for 10 minutes, and I have it wraped in a paper towel now.
Second question, Is there any way I can make it safe to put in the tank again?
The tank will stay empty for a while anyways to cycle, so no fish are currently in danger.
Thanks in advance, even if you have no response other then "OMG EE COCKROACH" like me, >__<
