It absolutely does not require bright light.

Mine has been slowly growing in a 2.5 gallon tank with no light in a dark corner and no filter. It's about as hardy as java moss in my experience.

Hydra are really not much more than inverted jellyfish. Certainly not something you want in your tank. :)

I'm going with either Hets (Heterandria formosa) or Clown Killies (Pseudepiplatys annulatus) in my next tank. Both do best in species tanks and will easily breed.
