I am considering using a 20g for my tads as I dont have enough space for tons of jars. I know Spring water isnt too expensive, but if I want to do water changes every now and then and it may require a lot over time. This isn't about the $ (as it is cheap anyway), but more so about the hassle of lugging tons of gallon containers from the grocery store all the time.

I have an RO/DI filter for my fish tanks already, and I have "RO Right" to add back minerals. Think this would be ok in place of the spring water?

also... is filteration possible in tad tanks without them getting sucked in easy? or is filteration even necessary? I will have lots of java moss and almond leaves in there.

thanks for all the tips.

i was already aware of the canabalism, as I have already had 6 eggs with fully developed tads eaten by 2 other tads...

however, my hours at work keep me from having time to constantly care for tads in their individual compartments.

I am going to use a 20g long that is about 6 inches high in water. I will have tons of leaves (almond), java moss, and a fake plant fish-fry matt that should allow for more than enough hiding spots.

i am also going to add a area for the tads to morph out on, and then move them to a 10g once the tail is gone.

hopefully this works... if not, then at least it is a valid lesson learned. and then back to the time-consuming work!
