Polywog Not Growing...

    My room mate has had this polywog for a little over 3 months. He has not changed at all, no legs growing, he hasnt gotten any bigger, and we don't know whats up. He lives in a 55 gallon tank with some goldfish, and we feed him peas all the time, and just fish flakes.
    We were wondering if anyone has had any experience with this type of tadpole? Or any suggestions on how to feed him, etc.

    Thanks

    And goldfish make for horrible PH. Do you have something available to climb out on. He may not sprout legs until he knows he can get out of the water.

    Well he died during the night. He got really puffy, and then sorta exploded. We have no idea what happened.

    some sort of internal infection. Sadly you can't tell about these things until its too late. I would suggest not keeping tadpoles in with goldfish again.
