One thing that helps with this room is to remember that the horns will summon soldiers that are pointing their swords the same way you are. So if you are having difficulty because of the fact that the soldiers keep killing themselves as they enter the room, try turning your sword every few turns so that they enter the room differently and don't kill each other as much.

You've also probably figured out that the ideal path is to move to the west along the line of horns to summon as many soldiers as you can. These soldiers should attract the incoming roaches as you head for the mimic potion (once you get to the east wall). When you get the mimic potion, place your mimic where he can get rid of the biggest threat: the roach queens. I ended up placing the mimic at (1,2) with my sword facing north, then turned to face northeast so that I could deal with the oncoming roaches from my east that the soldiers hadn't been able to take care of.

There are also a few decoy potions around, and placing decoys up in the north area so that their "attract zones" form the largest width possible will attract large numbers of new roaches to them instead of you as you go to do other things and generally make life easier.

O.K. is there a way to find these decoys without having to click every square on the grid

They're under the stalwarts so once you let them move, they'll show up.

Or specifically:
