ADF tadpoles!!!!
 
10 Attachment(s)
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!!

yup..better start a jar in the window withaged tankwater and letuce..you probably have some micro fauna in the established plants as you seem to have some small crustaceans already.

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

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

Awesome! Thanks everyone! So will these "crustaceans" hurt anything?
