    didn’t realise it needed a team to raise afew wriggly things in a bowl! Am impressed with blog ( yes I did know what one was! ) and would like to be kept posted with their progress Hope you’re not planning on naming them as well ( you’ll run out! ). How soon do they change into frogs Mr Master of Aquatic Knowledge ?

    We have 11 tadpoles and one has turned into a frog, he is on a rock above water. Should I move him out of water? I have been feeding the tadpoles fish food and lettuce, what should I feed the frog? He looks just like the frog in your pictures!

    Thank you for your help in advance!

      We found that the baby frogs didn’t always like being emerged in water. So, yes, I would suggest moving the frog to another tank with dry land/rocks and some shallow water that it can swim around in but easily get out of (so the rocks can’t be too high above the water level). Make sure it can’t get trapped between the rocks and the side of the tank too. And the frog will need live food. Which you can buy from some pet stores (we actually went out and caught small flies and bugs… but I think buying them would be easier!) They’re attracted to the movement of the bugs (and if you get anything with wings, make sure you’ve got a lid for the tank!)

      Hope that helps 🙂
