If you have a magnetic scraper, put it in the tank with the highest light output. Place it near the surface and within a week it should be covered in algae (well at least the top), take it out and put in your shrimp tank, then the next morning check it out, usually there will be planeria swarming it, then you can just take it our and wash it off... Or another method I've used to dwindle their population is to take a leaf (preferably a long broad one like those of swords) that is either covered with algae or dying and put it in the shrimp tank, same idea, wait overnight (or maybe 2 or 3 nights depending) and let the planeria swarm it, then you can remove it and a good number of planeria at the same time. These two methods help me remove roughly 20-40 worms at a time...although I will say, the scraper will become very slimy from the worms...
