I got some clawed frogs and now I have hundreds of tadpoles hatching. Anyone know what to feed them?

I once had clawed frogs and they bred several times.
I kept a batch of about 30 tadpoles.
I fed them dried nettles leaves reduced in fine powder, but also yeast (not too much at one time because water pollution may be dangerous).
Finally, I gave them finely powdered fish food and green algae obtained scratching dirty glasses of an aquarium.
I ended with 8 froglets.

Caution ! this species can colonize ponds and marshes in temperate country. Do not release any outdoors if you have more success than you expected.

I always used blanched then liquidised spinach, put it in some tight material then squeezed the juice into the tank. Use decent airation to keep it in suspension, spirulina and chollela powder work fine aswell.
