As a Hatchling, Tadpoles are almost 100% Vegetarian, as they grow & back legs start to form they become almost 100% Carnivorous, requiring a much higher protein food with high levels of insect meal, Natures Grub provide these specific Dietary requirements in form of 2 life stage diets Natures Grub Tadpole Hatchling Food is a Pro-Biotic vegetable based sinking pellet for hatchling Tadpoles that require a lower protein diet, rich in natural health boosting ingredients, as well as low levels of Insect Meal.
Hatchling Tadpoles require a very low protein diet for the first 6 weeks of their life, or until their legs start forming, also at this early life stage, Tadpoles have no requirement to spend time on the water surface & feel much more secure staying at the bottom of the pond or river, finding safety under decaying leaves or amongst aquatic plants.
Natures Grub Tadpole Food 6 Weeks+ is a Pro-Biotic Insect & Vegetable based sinking pellet for Tadpoles that require a higher protein diet, once the rear legs have started to form, this is normally at 6 weeks plus, rich in natural health boosting ingredients, as well as high levels of Daphnia & Insect Meal.
Tadpoles feel more secure & suffer from less stress if they can eat from the bottom of a pond or river, these sinking pellets allow their natural behaviour.
Once Tadpoles have become frogs or toads we suggest moving on to Natures Grub Wildlife Pond Mix.
