Most fungi won't harm cockroaches. So probably it isn't a real problem for the roaches. 
You could add springtails as they eat mold or try to reduce moisture.

Things continue to mold! I'm boiling their log today and setting it out for a few days....to make sure it's totally dry. I'm cleaning and replacing a layer of substrate. And water....should I take out the water bowl and let them get moisture from the fruit. Expect I can't tell if theyre eating anything..Thanks in advance

I would remove the water bowl at least for now and let them get it from the fruit. You can always put it back in if you want after things dry up a bit.

They just don't eat as much as you would think unless you have lots of them. You could remove all there current food and put new food in, in a day or two if you want.
