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.

    This is going to go on until at least July, and it won't really get completely normal after that either
