Day 3 - The Tadpoles Have Hatched

The gray frog tree frog eggs have hatched into TINY and ADORABLE tadpoles! There are probably several hundred in the 10-gallon tank, so tomorrow, I will move 50 to a new tank and release the rest. I wish I could raise them all! These little guys hatched on May 17th, so they are not quite ready to eat real food yet (right?) Do you think raising 50 tadpoles in a 10-gallon tank is appropriate? Please educate me!
Here are the little babies! My camera isn't good enough quality to get a decent close-up. There's about a dozen tadpoles on the glass closest to the camera, and you can see dozens more on the far right of the tank.
This is the tank where the 50 chosen tadpoles will grow up. There is no gravel, which will make it easier to change out the water. The plants are from Petsmart, as is the fake log. I hope the tadpoles grow up big and strong!
