Hi all!

I brought a bunch of tadpoles inside in November to finish their metamorphosing into froglets. Most of them turned into frogs, a few died. Today it appears that the last of the froglets has died and I am wondering what I did wrong.

Setup: tank with sand, rocks, moss, misted daily. Pond area, refreshed with spring water, no chemicals. Tank/water not heated.
Temperature: about 65 degrees Fahrenheit.
Lighting: non-heating herp light, on from 9am to 9pm.
Food: flightless fruit flies, not sprinkled with vitamin dust.

Any ideas?

Thank you very much. I know that frogs have a high mortality rate but I really hoped that at least one would have lived to be released when I heard the frogs begin to sing at the seasonal pond.

When I was a kid I did just this, watched them all metamorph and fed them their 1st male: pinhead crickets. All of mine lived and were released into their home where I found them... I am not sure what happend with yours.
