ADF tadpoles!!!!

So I was cleaning my tank yesterday and I noticed some eggs stuck to a plant......and more stuck to the glass....and some floating....etc. I remember reading about ADF eggs and what they look like and determined that that is indeed what they are. :) So I moved a group of them into an empty area in one of my tanks. Now they are in the C shape and I am hoping they will hatch very soon. They twitch on occasion like their ready to burst from their little egg! Anyways, my question is.....what should I feed them and how soon do I start feeding them? Do they need anything else special added to their water?

And here's the problem....
after I moved them into this spot where I used to keep my betta, I started watching and noticed a ton of little teeny tiny white "bugs" swimming and darting around like crazy. There is a bit of algea on this decoration and they seem to gravitate toward that.
My question is....will the tadpoles eat these? Can I clean the water and they'll go away? Will they harm the tads? Can I change the water and clean things with the tads in there, or should I wait?

Attached are a few pics. You can see the tads in the eggs and the teeny little white specs on the glass.
The last pic I made the little white bugs obvious by outlining them.

Sorry for all the questions.....:( Thanks in advance for all of your help!!

Yep, if you can find some java moss, that might be a good thing to add.

Flippersandfins.net African Dwarf Frog Breeding article

Along with the infusoria, spirulina powder is also good for most fish fry.
Better get some BBS started soon.
