Thread: Tadpole ID and care help needed

    Default Tadpole ID and care help needed

    Hi,sorry if I posted this in the wrong forum, please move if so. So Iím trying to raise some tadpoles I found in a very shallow concrete ditch at the side of a road just outside Hanoi in Vietnam. It was a fairly rural area, though on a very busy road. The spawn was in small rafts and the tadpoles are tiny, only a few mm long. The problem is though they donít seem interested in food. They swim slowly about the water column like small fish and donít hang onto things like all other tadpoles Iíve kept. Iíve tried feeding with blanched veg and fish pellets. Could they be filter feeders? If so what is best to feed them? Pics attached but I can get better if needed. Thanks.

    Hmmmm! Interesting! Can't tell you what they are but maybe try fish flakes instead of pellets??? If you've decided to keep trying to raise them... let us know how it goes! Keep us updated!
