Go outside and collect some pill bugs or "rolly pollys" from under logs, etc. They eat nothing but the mold, and enough of them will take care of the whole mold issue. They do not bite, won't hurt any terrarium inhabitant, and can be eaten by the reptile/amphibian without any harmful effects.
These are EXCELLENT for the vivarium hobby, and many keepers give up on their beautiful tanks/setups because of this mold problem.
Bleach can have harmful effects on many animals, and if you put bleach into an amphibian cage there is a good chance it will kill the pet quickly. Amphibians breathe through their skin, and even when I recommend cleaning solutions I don't recommend anything other than one part listerine, 10 parts water.
