How to raise a Tadpole

By Chloe D.

Raising a tadpole can be hard. But if you care for them, I know you can do it. First, before you get a tadpole, make sure you have a home for your tadpole. Dig up small plants so the tadpole can hide from predators. Then put it in a 10 gallon fish tank and add three gallons of water with rocks all around it for when he or she grows up. I’d add vines or plants like lily pads. The tadpole eats lettuce, spinach, or thin slices of cucumber. That’s all the information you need to raise a tadpole.
