What will eat planaria

Hi I think I've had planaria in my shrimp only tank, so I totally cleaned it out including the sand substrate which I just binned and added new, since then it's been ok, so my question is if another outbreak occurs could I put say an assassin snail in to eat them or would there be any small fish that would eat them ? All the params are bang on , it's only a 25litre .
Thanks

Planaria

Hello Canary...

Very small tank. There are any number of aquarium fish that eat the little worms, but the tank is too small for most of them. Guppies will eat the worms, but not many of them can be kept in such a small tank. Maybe 6 or so, males only.

I have a 200 and a 120 ..but always fancied a few shrimp.. I think I will just keep it as a shrimp tank.. Wouldn't want 6 fish in there , I did think a betta would be ok until I read they REALLY enjoy shrimps :/

Thank you
