Be careful what you wish for (toads!)

9 Apr

At first I thought these toads had laid 300 eggs, then I saw 600 tadpoles hatching, then I thought there might be 1000, then a day later I knew there were over 1500 and now I can say there may be 2000 tadpoles in this 10 gallon tank.

I have been pouring in a quart of green water (algae) from the turtle pond and sprinkling in some Hikari First Bites, a finely ground fish food for baby fish.

As soon as we get past this cold spell of 30 degree (minus 1 Celsius) nights I will put the tadpoles into the 30-gallon outdoor pond.

      I think you are right. Lots of tadpoles end up as turtle food, snake food, bird food, fish food. Tadpoles make the world go round.

      After it warms up a day or so from now they will go into my 30 gallon pond. IF they make it to the toad stage I’ll take them to some wild ponds and wish them luck.
