I was doing some more reading this afternoon about tadpoles and realized that since they eat (ate) algae and mosquito larvae in the wild, they probably would get the “green” they need and the protein combined in a fish food flake. And sure enough, someone discovered the same thing.

So I crunched up just a few fish food “discs” (a little different than goldfish flakes) and put them in the jar…once the little buggers figured out that it was *food*, they chowed down. To the point where they were jostling each other for the food. I’ll crunch up a few more tomorrow for them, too. I expect it’s a better diet than they’d get in the wild, but with 6 of them in one small container, they need all the help they can get. 😮.
