Where did Hydra go?

Two weeks ago I was doing a water change on my 10 Gallon and noticed that there were LOTS of hydra on my class as well as some on my plants. Not having a time deal with it them I decided to go back to dealing with it later on. Yesterday I was just feeding the tank and noticed that the tank is FREE of Hydra. I am 100% sure it was Hydra because Ive had it before in another tank and it was that weird stem with little tentacle things. The only things I have in that tank are 4 Assassin snails, around 40 Red Cherries and 8 Otos. Is it possible that Otos can eat Hydra?

I'd lean towards it being the assassin snails

92% of all statistics are made up on the spot.

Wha??? Assassins eat Hydra? I tried to look that up on Google and there is apparently only one other snail that eats Hydra and it wasnt the assassin?
