Default Found tadpoles on the back of my yellow Teribillis, what do I do?

Found 4 tadpoles on the back of one of my 2 terribs. I have had them for 3+ years, and since i have never heard any calling or seen any breeding behavior i just assumed they were the same gender. I have little coco huts with petri dishes but I've never seen any eggs in them. Somehow they managed to lay eggs and get them to hatch into tadpoles which they are now carrying around without me noticing anything. About an hour after i found them i checked again and found one of the tadpoles on a leaf. I had prepared some tadpole tea from my stock of oak and magnolia leaves and added some to spring water and kinda scooped him into the tupperware container, but im wondering what i do with the remaining tadpoles on his back? I put some water i to the petri dishes and some extra ones out, kinda hoping he deposits them. What should I do?

One that fits your viv 😄 does not have to be big.. 2cm's of water will do.

UPDATE Went to check this morning and none of the tads were deposited, even worse 2 of the 3 had disappeared off his back. Looked and can't find em anywhere. After that i shooed him into one of the water dishes and poured a little water on his back to rinse the last one off in a dish and moved him to a set up container. It was a learning experience i guess, RIP the 2 tadpoles though.
