Talking Tadpoles!!

So i went to the lake yesterday... and somehow came home with somewhere around 50ish tadpoles. Currently they are living in a Mcdonalds large cup (rinsed and drained, of course), but i will put them in the 30 gallon after lunch... I was planning only filling it 3 inches deep. Ill post pics soon.

shallow water, something to hide in/under and lots and lots and lots of food. Flakes always worked for me. I LOVE catching tadpoles!

I put a clay pot, a large rock, and a plastic plant in there. I put them in the 30 gal because the other tanks have/will have bettas in them. These ARE NOT betta food.... :)

Back when there was ditches surronding each parcel of land here, I used to catch tadpoles alot. However they put in a sewer system and the ditches all dried up - no more tadpoles

No more tadpoles and I haven;t seen fireflies here in years...So sad :(

The record high temps for this spring brought the frogs and vegetation early this year. It caused the frogs to spawn too early and the trees bloomed too early...therefore...when the frogs should be developing, the thirsty trees sucked up all their moisture... drying up the puddles. Killing the frogs.

I love frogs and tadpoles
