Question Pacific Treefrog Tadpoles Tips

I have saved a few pacific treefrog tadpoles from a dried up pool of water. Most of them are still quite small. Any tips on keeping them? I have a setup, I'm not sure what to feed them, how often I should do water changes, and how long it takes for them to grow.

Default Re: Pacific Treefrog Tadpoles Tips

Use clean de chlorinated water. Or bottled water. do a 50% water change every few days. I would put a bubble spongefilter (simple air pump connected to airline, connected to sponge filter, all can be bought at any aquarium store or pet store with fish). If you use a regular filter you may suck the tadpoles up and harm them. feed bits of commercial bought tadpole pellets, algae from local ponds around you, and potentially tiny bits of boiled egg and lettuce. When they are ready to come out of the water they will have all four limbs and the tail will shrink. At this point tilt the tank steadily on its side, so the water leans at an angle and makes a "beach" for them to crawl onto. once they are out you can raise them like any other tree frog or release them.
