First the background story.

In September we had 3 hurricanes pass through my area within about a month. With all of the debris clogging the drains, we have several inches of standing water in the gutters for weeks. One day while checking the mail I noticed a lot of action in the water. Turns out the gutters were full of tadpoles. After the 2nd hurricane, we sat with the windows open that night (no power) and all you could hear were the frogs croaking all night long. I guess it was great weather, if you're a frog. I take it upon my self to scoop up several hundred tadpoles. Knowing the gutters would either drain or dry up, I put them in 2 large containers. Well here it is 2 months later, I have released about 50 baby frogs and still have many tadpoles to go. My wife and I decided to keep 4 babies and watch them grow into adults.

I would like to know what kind of frogs I have and if there are any online guides on how to care for my frogs. Currently they are housed in a ten gallon aquarium, that has dry land on one side and water on the other, with 2 rock structures for them to swim in. Do they need heat, bubbles, more rocks, and so on? Any help is greatly appreciated. Oh and all water has been de-chlorinized, or is spring water. Thanks.
