    We used a 600 gallon water trough as a kid pool this summer. We had drained most of the tank but left a a couple inches that were below the drain plug. When it came time to move the tank the boy realized it was full of tadpoles. I had them catch some of them and relocated then to boys aquarium. They fed them fish food flakes. This morning they saw a frog stuck to the glass above the water line. So far we have turned two little tree frog loose this mornin to live on there own. Im sure not all of the tadpoles are tree frogs but as they loose there tails they will all be released. I will add photos as they come along.

    Very cool. Had the same occur in Florida once, due to procrastinating with my gardening. I had pulled much monkey grass and placed all into a baby pool filled with a few inches of water, protecting the roots until I had time to transplant all. In no time at all, there were hundreds of tadpoles, and I learned that they can actually become carnivorous. I placed them into an aquarium, like yourself, which caused a need to quickly learn more, resulting in cute little frogs like you found yourself with most recently. I have never made that mistake again...
