|Tadpoles four days after hatching. They have already eaten |
most of the azolla fern and nardoo fern. I have crushed lettuce
floating in the water
|The bath. The taddies, spread out at their daytime work |
of grazing on the sides of the bath, there is algae growing there.
Plenty of them, as you can see.
In the following close-up shot you will see that the taddies, five days out of the egg here, are not all growing at the same rate.
|The beginning of a feeding frenzy. I have just fed them with a little fish food. |
I meant this for the fish that also inhabit the bath but the tadpoles
have seized on the fish flakes with great abandon. So much
for tadpoles being vegetarian.
