Description:

Found in shallow water channel with emergent Typha capensis plants. Swimming at about 10 cm depth in 'schools'. Each tadpole swimming with head down at about a 60 degree angle. Only tip of tail moving - creating a circulation current as the tadpoles filter-feed. Not a great photo - but it shows these features. Look carefully in photo 1 to see the thin tip to the tail which is the part that is moving.

Description:

Seems to be this species - correct range, lacks pale vertebral line and isn't spotted with red - but not sure that I'm judging correctly.

Seen a couple of times since first rains; briefly mistaken for a smallish Breviceps when first seen in pool (body probably around 3cm), but proved that wrong before I got a closer view by actually swimming, as opposed to the traditional floundering of Breviceps.
