    I used to raise these all the time, they seem to be pretty easy. I kept mine in a 10 gallon tank and treated them like tropical fish with regards to substrate, temp., water changes, filtration, lighting etc. I fed them either flakes or pellets twice a day, as much as they could eat. IMO the higher the protein in the flakes and/or pellets the better. The only thing I did any different from fish was I kept a floating mass of plants growing on the surface of the water. That way when the tadpoles turned into frogs they could rest on the vegetation and I didn't have to worry about how far along any of them were. In your case plastic plants would probably be the way to go, since I doubt live plants could withstand the damage 15 bullfrog larvae would do. Also, with that many, I would think about at least a 20 or 30 gallon tank. Hope that helps.

    I think they would eat the plants, they seem to like lettuce from plastic salad bags and can eat 1 handful of it (boiled) in 2 days.

    Its so hard to believe that those eventually turn into huge frogs. Oh, the wonders of nature.

    I haven't even noticed a single change in them since I got them. None have died either!

    No, native and are slowing lossing numbers in the wild, so my tads won't harm anything.
