Default Community Vent Tadpole Tank - Pics & Update

Due to lack of time to take care of dozens of individual compartments with Tadpoles in them, I went ahead and risked the idea of putting them in a community 20g tank. I did this about 2 weeks ago with 2 week old tadpoles (so 4 weeks old now on average), had put in 13, did a headcount yesterday, and still have all 13!

It is too dark and full of leaves/moss/hiding-places to see any swimming around on a regular basis, but I plan on doing a headcount (taking out all the leaves/etc) once every 2 weeks (once a week if I somehow find time).

Anyway, here are some pics of the setup. I will be adding about 20 or so more in about 2 weeks. I dont want to add young tadpoles since they may be too weak to run from the larger ones, so I am keeping the newly hatched in small plastic containers together at first.

I had to add an airstone because the top was getting too glossy.

NAIB use to do it and still might for all I know. At the time I was there, they didn't keep close tabs on the number of tads that went in and came out so couldn't say they never lost a tad to cannibilism but it if they did, it wasn't a large portion.
