The school year's ending and my science teacher decide to let me keep his gray tree frog tadpoles. He found them in a pond or something. Anyways, they're about two weeks old now. I've been feeding them fish pellets and they've been gnawing on some algae in the empty tank i put them in. (i was going to raise some zebra danio fry again but i decided against it, and becuase of my laziness the tank just sat there filled with water for a few weeks so i was really lucky i kept it.) The tadpoles are getting bigger and bigger. What should I feed them now?Crickets are out of the question after the little cricket incident a while back...hehehehe. ^_^ ^_^ They basically got loose, and since my parents are mortally afraid of insects, they demanded that any type of live insect that I bring in this house will be immediately thrown out...which kinda sucks because I had to give back my toadsies. Oh well...they were a little too much to handle,with the busy lifestyle I have now. So what kind of insects should I give them to eat when they start growing legs?
btw, I intend to release them.There are four of them in a five gallon tank.
What about trying them on live bloodworm or daphne which you can buy from your nearest fish outlet.
They would go for these things in the wild including mosquito larve
Once the tadpoles turn in to froglets, they are mostly going to spend their time on land and will only eat live animals on land. Since they're so tiny, that limits things quite a bit. From the local aquarium store, you can try to get wingless fruitflies and pinhead crickets. I don't know if your parents would agree to that. You can also catch tiny insects and worms in the yard as long as no chemicals were used in the area. It's hard to feed baby tree frogs due to their size so it would be best to release them as soon as they morph.
