OMG Tadpoles??? Help!

My mom's adf's had babies! This was in no way planned, and now we have 6 little tadpoles that we've relocated to an old .5 gallon. Looking at pictures, they appear to be about 5 or 6 days old. We're going to petco tomorrow, so what should we get?

Fishies:
Ezekiel - Butterfly DT Male
Schnappi - Blue & Green HMPK Male
Midnight - Forest Green & Blue HM Male
Yuki-Onna - Blue & Clear CT Female
Powder - White & Clear DeT Male

you'll want tadpole food if you don't have any yet. It's basically super soft pellets. Maybe a larger tank, each one will need a gallon full grown. Tadpoles also like a lot of cover from plenty of plants.

Really just the usual stuff any baby needs.

Thanks :) Their parents are in a two-gallon, it's just that a .5 was all we had lying around. I'm going to see to getting a larger tank tomorrow, and a 10 gal for all of them if the tadpoles survive.

Yuppers, of course xD You can't really see what they look like from above, but when you peer at them from below they have these little patches of irredescence. And they are TINY. Smaller than sea monkeys. My mom just gave them a bit of extremely crushed betta flake food with dried bloodworms and shrimp, and they seem to be eating it.

That's really kwl I actually had tadpoles once myself...... feed them soaked dogfood mine loved it just make sure the water doesn't get to dirty or that will cause a large fatality. I put a tadpole in my tank once with my Brutal Fire- betta he first tried to eat one then spit it out then he never messed with the other ones. Oh, I forgot the most important part!!!!!!!!! Make sure to use an airstone lightly or they will die. From lack of oxygen.


Good luck!,
Ethan

I wouldn't use dogfood just because it has so much potentially non-fish friendly stuff, especially dog food that isn't organic.

Well, I've counted five of the six of them alive this morning, and they were chowing down on another meal. They are so cute!
