Any suggestions on Hydra eradication? I have read the threads on the Fenbendazole. But I hate putting meds in my tanks. Usually solves the problem but kills other things too.

I read that pond snails will eat them or that not feeding will kill them before you kill the livestock.

Ive never had a issue worth worrying about but have seen pond and mts eat them. Have heard ponds are very good for this.

I keep a small population in my Biube with my Ramshorns. Along with a few MTS. He is adorable.

They are good eaters.

I have used the liquid Fen (goat dewormer) special dosing for inverts and no problems. If the snail doesn't do the job, with dosing the Fen, it was done overnight and a number of pwc perfect!

Thanks for the info. My hubbie and I stared at the tank and haven't been able to spot any more?! And the one in the pic was smaller than the shrimplette. Maybe it's early and the pond snail will do the trick. But I will keep close eye on things. Saw lots of baby shrimp while we were staring so it was fun.

I need a magnifying glass for the tiny ones!!! So glad they are producing for you. They are amazing looking. I just got about a half dozen common Cherry shrimp from a hobby friend in a good will trade and am actually very happy about it, I missed having extra kinds of shrimp. Snail & shrimp planted vase time maybe.

Guppy grass is doing great and other plants are recovering from my nuking them. Buce has new leaves. Snails and shrimp doing good. No more hydra spotted so far. Click image for larger version
