 MOLDY FOOD! HELP!!!!!!

food i left at the bottom of the tank got all white and furry, an i think it was the cause of the death of three tadpoles. their mouths got all white and lopsided, some lost the abity to move there legs properly or at all. after death their chests turned from translusent white (natural color) to solid white. we scooped out all the food but one still died. was this all caused by mold? how do i prevent it? how do i get rid of it if it comes back?

well, I figured out what the illness was, but not before it wiped out 8 out of 12 tadpoles.

I currently have 2 and 1/2 froglings (one has only one arm that popped this morning) and one legged tadpole.

please try not to put in too much excess food, also do partial water changes occasionally to help prevent this problem. I have not raised any tadpoles lately so I am wondering, what are you using as food for them?
