Maybe that's what happened. IDK? Poor poor things.

We haven't hiked by that particular pond again so no new tads yet, but she's been talking about it! We'll see. I can't STAND killing baby animals, so sad. So I'm going to do everything POSSIBLE to make the next ones live! LOL!

Back in my preschool teaching years, a parent brought in a huge jar full of tadpoles and pond water. It was full of all the algae/plants that would have been in the pond. She told us not to feed them anything else. Those tadpoles survived for a very long time but never turned into frogs. It was the strangest thing. We had to give them back to her at the end of the year. It seemed like they lasted for months without changing.

Sounds like you had a complete little ecosystem going with the plants and algae as feed for the tadpoles and other critters in the water. They probably would have done more maturing with more feed; however, the water might have been harder to keep clean.

In my young boy days I raised quite a few tadpoles to frogs. All I did was take a bucket with me, fill it with pond water/algae then started catching tadpoles. I left them in that, once their legs started growing I tossed in a stick for them to crawl up on and eventually get out on their own.

We've just recently started getting into fish and found out that you don't want to do a 100% change out of water if you don't do it very frequently. They get used to their own "soup" and suddenly adjusting to clean water can shock them to death. Makes me think tadpoles have the same issue.
