Smile Tadpoles and Guppies and Snails- Oh My!

Hello- I'm new to this group and I would sure like some advice here.
Can I put some tadpoles in my 20 gallon tank that has large guppies, mystery snails and bamboo shrimp?

Hi Ericio,

What species of tadpoles are they? Guppies will eat small tadpoles. If the tadpoles are African Clawed Frogs (not dwarf frogs), they will eventually eat the guppies. I wouldn’t put tadpoles in with guppies unless they’re in a breeder basket and can grow to proper size there.

Tadpoles have a massive bio load and are not suitable for an aquarium with fish in it. They need nearly constant access to greens/biofilm for nutrition and that can cause really poor water quality. I would not recommend mixing tadpoles and fish.
