How do I take care of Bumble Bee Toad tadpoles?


Bumble Bee Toad tadpoles, just a couple days after hatching.

Bumble Bee Toad Tadpole Care
Once the eggs hatch, the tadpoles (very small, approximately 3-4mm) will drop to the gravel and remain stationary for a few days, while they absorb the rest of their yolk. After they begin to swim around, it’s time to start feeding and preform regular water changes. At Josh’s Frogs, we feed the tadpoles Repashy Savory Stew. Small portions are made up and poured into half of a petri dish, where the gel is allowed to set, then placed in the fridge. Every day, an entire petri dish of food is placed in the rain chamber. A partial water change (about 50%) is performed daily to keep water quality as pristine as possible. After 5-6 weeks, the tadpoles will develop back legs, followed by front legs 5-7 days later. At this point, the toadlets, typically solid black and about the size of a fruit fly, will climb on the cork pieces.
