Yes, 3 gallons will be fine for I'm guessing 5. They need lot's of water changes, of course (remember that in a natural environment ammonia/nitrite/nitrate are usually not present).
The wild food is good, because depending on the species, tadpoles are vegetarian/carnivorous/omnivorous. I think most are omnivores.. Even so keep lot's of small water bugs present. When they get larger, you can start catching/buying small crickets for them. At the first sign of legs I'd set up some land source for them.
If at any point they don't seem to be growing, I'd supplement with some fish food just in case. :D
taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.
