Great horny toads, er frogs.

I've had a green frog visit the pond every year now, but this time he finally managed to twang out the right notes and attracted a mate to his little slice of heaven and the two of them have covered the inner confines of my large lilly with a clutch of future croakers.

Since this is new to me and I'm not a savvy amphibisti I was wondering what chance these thousands of little fellas have in surviving to ribbithood if left to their own devices in a pond full of fish and whether it would be worthwhile for me to try and raise some to kermit form in my quarantine tank before releasing them back into the pond?

Thoughts?

I've never had to do anything special. I end up with lots of tadpoles, which then might end up being 10 little frogs, which then end up being about 3 -4 big frogs.
