Default Best food for hylid and/or ranid tadpoles

Hello, all.

I wondered what you thought the best food for tadpoles of hylid and/or ranid tadpoles. I have some, I think, of each - separated in different containers. I have Zoo Med tadpole food, which is 50% crude protein. Is that too high of a percentage?

My method for raising tadpoles is this: "put them in a cycled tub with algae growing in it and watch e'm grow" Pretty darn easy. The only problem is that they tub usually has to have sat there for quite a while before a good amount of algae starts to grow. but after that they are good to go........until the algae runs out
