Default ideas for vent tadpoles?

I have some vent tadpoles that have both arms and legs and I dont want them to drown. I think they might be ready to come out of the water but they still have almost a full tail. Right know i have them in deli cups inside a 10gallon tank with some pothos plant hanging in so they can get out. But I found one dead today I think it may have drowned any good ideas to set them up better.

Take a plastic shoebox, put a thin layer of damp spag moss over 2/3 of the bottom. Put something under the end of the box so the moss end is higher. Put a little of their water in the other end just touching the moss. Then they can crawl out when they are ready and won't drown.

i morph all my frogs out in a 10 gl tanks 3inches high by about 3 long water area , i use a corkbark ramp to give the access to the land and plant areas.i had numerous tads crawl out of the tad tubs strait up the sides some with tails, i dont personally feel heathy frogs will drown if theres anyway out.

Or, you could just tilt the cup and put a lid on it. That is what we do with all the tadpoles.
