Bullfrog Tadpoles/Fish

I recently had to "adopt" a pair of bullfrog tadpoles, due to lack of supervision and care by a friend of mine, n e ways i have them in amy 55 with 3 small sunset gouramis. They are too small (1.5'') to kill or even hurt anything and they are timid anyways. I just wanted to know if anyone had any advice to care for them until they sprout legs and such and i can either set up a terrarium or sel em'

OK most likely you won't be able to sell them. Bull frogs are common in a lot of states and most people would rather catch their own frog then pay for one. Tadpoles are pretty hard to care for though. Especially Bulls, they will need a pH of 7-7.2, temp. of 60-75, lighting of day only. If I were you I would set them up their own tank instead of placing them with your gouramis. A 10 gallon can be purchased and you can use it to raise them when they get their legs too, when they get older though a large tank will have to be purchased. Also there are many sites online of how to care for bull frogs, so just put in a search and get the exact amount of care they need. Hope they do ok!
