Oh no! Sad day. I always used romaine or red leaf lettuce and my guys were fine. Maybe the fish ate the lettuce too quickly/too exuberantly for the little guys?
I always found that my tadpoles were rather sensitive creatures. Sensitive to water quality, sensitive to stress, sensitive to weird diseases, etc. Maybe being in with the fish is too much stress for them?
Definitely try the algae wafers, I never used those (never knew about them actually!) but I bet they'll work just as well as the lettuce...or maybe better in your case.
Side note: you say they're gone... Gone as in dead or gone as in disappeared? If they disappeared and the fish is super fat, I'd wonder about the fish eating them... I found, when I was keeping fish, that sometimes they harass each other or nibble on something in their tank only when I wasn't watching...
I'm bummed that they died! :(
