Raising Tadpoles - they're fighting?

4 years ago

Has anyone raised tadpoles? I rescued about 100 of them from a pool that was about to be dumped, and though they have not yet grown their first set of legs, they have suddenly started charging one another. One will rush another and then they will both swim off explosively. I think this is some kind of aggressive behavior. Any thoughts? I know my container is small and I have recently gotten a much larger one, and have moved several of them into the new one, but the ones in the old container continue this behavior. I am feeding them regularly and they seem to be eating what I give them. This is a first time for me, so any advice is welcome.
