Re: Tadpole dilemna.......

Assuming that you have tadpoles, it is my understanding that they will 
do quite nicely in a shallow water situation with a muddy bottom with 
lots of algae to munch on.  Would probably eat some flake food, also.  
The eggs could also be other creatures, such as fish, salamanders, etc., 
but you may not be able to discern this until they hatch. Could allow 
them to hatch and/or raise them in either a pond or a wading pool in a 
semi-shady area.
