I've got a Hydra problem!

'Scuze the nerd ref.

Well, it hasn't necessarily become a problem yet. This is the first time I've been seeing little hydra in my tank, and since I have shrimps and guppy fry, I want them OUT.

Today I was laboriously trying to snatch them with my tweezers, but it was so frustrating that I thought to myself "Hmm...I wonder if hydras and Excel mix." So I took a turkey baster and squirted a little on them. They seem to shrivel up.

Has anybody used this method before? Did it work? When they shrivel up will they come back?

Also, how much Excel can I use before it becomes dangerous for my shrimp? I judge that I might've used about twice the daily dose recommended by Seachem.

I got some fish in my tank and that solved my problem, but since you already have some in there I would go with the dewormer.

Mostly I just wanted to thank you for the reference HAIL HYDRA
