In Reply to: Help please, Tadpole/morph died, why?!?! posted by Shrek on March 16, 2003 at 16:16:41:

:I separated this tadpole off last week because he had developed back and front legs.

:He was in his own tank with about 2 1/2" of water and an island in the middle where he could climb out when he wanted to. He had branches and rocks in there to help him climb out also.

:He hadn't been eating for the past few days but I wasn't concerned because his tail was shrinking. Yesterday it had shrunk about 1/4 of what it was.

:Yesterday I changed his water with dechlorinated water because it needed changing.

:This morning the little guy was upside down on the bottom,dead.

:What have I done wrong?

:The tank wasn't aereated because he was the only one in there and I thought he didn't need it. I had two fish in a tank the same size and they did't need it. Do morphs?

:At what exact stage do their gills close and they use their lungs? When their tail has gone? When they are losing their tail?

:Maybe he couldn't get out and he drown? Maybe he starved even though there was food in there?

:Any one shed some light on this for me because I am quite upset and I have 10 other taddies to go through this and I don't want to stuff up again.
