Default giant tadpoles 2 of them

I got 2 bullfrog tadpoles that are 4inches each. Actually 1 is bigger than the other he's more like 4.5 inches. I am currently keeping them in a cool room and feeding them pellets. These are some of them biggest tadpoles I;ve ever had. These arent the longest but the biggest as in fat. The biggest tadpole I;ve ever had was alittle over 5 inches. I'll try to put up some pics soon they have baby legs now very very small legs. They are morphing but at a very slow rate because of the tempurature. Does anyone know any good methods to keeping tadpoles??? I know that the bigger and stronger the tadpople the stronger the frog will be after morphing.

I know they like to eat crushed goldfish flakes, frog and tadpole bites, algae wafers, and when their back legs start to get large they might eat chopped up blackworms. I also heard boiled romaine lettuce is good too, but I never tried it.

I see no need to keep them at a cool temp though. They produce a lot of waste so keeping the water clean is essential. When their front legs pop out it's time to move them to a tank with water and some land, as young bullfrogs after being tadpoles tend to stay by the waters edge and practice hunting.

When I was younger and kept various tadpoles, I used to boil lettuce then freeze it in an ice-cube tray. The frozen cubes could be floated in the water for the tadpoles to nibble on. It seemed to work alright, although I'm sure there are better food options.
