I have never raised tadpoles before. I want to know if tinctorius tadpoles will thrive if I do not feed them powered algae. I have two tads seperated in two jars. I have put algae from my fish tank in there so it will grow quickly. I also have a plant grow light aver them so the algae grows fast and in abundance. I also plan to put in dead crickets and flies a couple times a week. Has anyone ever done this before, and is it a resonable idea?
