How to Raise Tadpoles?

Tadpoles are fun and easy to raise. You will need an aquarium, pond or fishbowl for them to live in. The water needs to be free of chlorine so set out your water for 5-7 days to allow the chlorine to evaporate. If you don’t have that kind of time then you can pick up dechlorination drops at the pet store. You should allow the water to sit out for at least a day even with the drops. Tadpoles take 6 to 9 weeks to mature. Make sure that their environment is at least 3/4 shade and free of any plants. For food you can boil lettuce for 10 minutes then freeze it. Depending on the number of tadpoles you will put in just a pinch for just a couple to an ice cube size bunch for a larger group. You don’t want to over feed as this makes the water dirty but under feeding will cause them to turn on each other.
