being the curious kid I was a few years ago, I too kept tadpoles all the time. The way I found it best to keep tadpoles is to catch some, like you have, get a larger tank ( I had a 24inL*12inD*15inH*), and 1/2-3/4 fill it with water from the pond they were caught in. Make sure any other water beasties are out. Place rocks etc in the water, half in half out, creating leadges for the frogs to grow onto. Bare in mind that a 2ft tank or similar will keep only a small amount of the full grown frogs, and they will need extra space out of the ank to roam aound in. Collecting water from the pond and replacing 50% each 1-2weeks was sufficient for my tads', because it helped dissolved any toxic waste, but they're hardier than tank fish.

hope my pinch of info helped, and best of luck with the critters Smile .
