Exclamation Narrowmouth toad tadpoles

Hello all!

I was wondering if anyone had any experience raising narrowmouth toad tadpoles? If so, have you encountered any difficulties particular to tadpoles in this genus? The reason I ask is because I have recently taken on a hand full of eastern narrowmouth toad tadpoles (Gastrophrne carolinensis) and they are dropping like flies. I have had experience raising ranids, hylids, and bufonids with very little trouble. I know that there are many variables that could be responsible for the high mortality rate (e.g. genetics, disease, husbandry issues), but I wanted to know if there was anything especially difficult about raising tadpoles of Gastrophryne. I have found very little concerning raising these tadpoles on the internet.

Thanks for your input.
