I clean out the poop every day with a small plastic scoop from the dollar store. And wipe down the inside glass every four or five days as needed

Since the animal relies on adhesion as its main form of locomotion, keeping the cage clean is important if you want him performing at his best. They are designed to self-clean so they can tolerate some dirt, but excess is no good. Picking up the poop every day is a great idea. We clean all our cages once a week (with bleaching done once every 2 months). Cleaning means removing everything from the enclosure, wiping it all down, and putting in fresh bedding. Now if you are using some sort of loose bedding (which I do not recommend with Tokays), just removing the poop and sort of sifting any other debris out would be best (with full replacement once a month).
