Ways to get rid of Hydra?
Not sure where to post this, but I went on vacation for a week and came back to find lots of great growth from my plants but I also noticed that Hydra seems to have made its way into my tank. Right now it seems the infestation is rather small, collecting in the right side of my tank. I've heard that Hydra can (and will) kill and eat baby shrimp (is Hydra able to eat adult shrimp?) So this infestation has me rather concerned. Are there any safe ways to get rid of it without getting rid of any plants it may have hitchhiked on, and without causing any harm to my plants, shrimp and snails? I have ramshorn snails and red cherry shrimp (amongst a few other shrimp arriving in a shipment later in the week.)
Life without an aquarium is just flat out boring, Unfortunately like most in the hobby I'm highly susceptible to Multiple-Tank-itis.
