Tadpole water

tadpole water

Unsure of what these egg like things in my tadpole water are. Can anyone help? They look like larvae of some sort and they can move around the water on their own. There are hundreds of them.

thanks. They've now hatched

thanks. They've now hatched into tiny little red backed bugs in the water. Very interesting little creatures.

The tadpoles are frogs, they are brown. Try posting this photo on the invertebrate section as well, they may be able to help better with your bugs.
