Our bullfrog tadpoles are drop-shipped from our supplier by 2-day air. They come with a Reptile & Amphibian Care booklet, as well as a Care Sheet with all the information you need to get your aquarium set up and your tadpoles acclimated. Below are some steps to get you started. (Note: make sure your hands are completely free of any soaps or lotions. Traces of these in the water can harm the tadpoles.)
The whole acclimating process should take 50-60 minutes. If it is done too quickly, the tadpoles might die.
As soon as your tadpoles start swimming around, beginning feeding them with tadpole food. You will need to change the water at least once a week; always use room temperature water. Tadpoles may not survive a sudden temperature change of more than 2-3° F.
(Note: When the tadpoles are being transferred in the video, all the water in the shipping bag has been replaced with holding tank water, removing the need for a net.)
