Tailless Tadpoles :(

Somehow, overnight, my 3 inch blue crayfish managed to get out of its tank, crawl into the 20 gallon tadpole tank, and devour almost all 25 of my leopard frog tadpoles. The survivors are all nearly tailless, and have trouble swimming. I feel so terrible for letting this happen. Are there any tips for taking care of tadpoles with missing or only half a tail? Please help!
