    Hydra are a pain, and microscopic pieces can break off and regrow from what I've read.
    Ive heard peroxide, directly injected on them, will kill them but wont hurt wildlife but physical removal just makes it spread...

    Iím currently fighting hydra and planaria in my tank with sl-aqua Z1. CK fish world carries it. Definitely remove any type of nerite snails because they will die and foul the water. It comes with a measuring spoon, 2 spoon for 50 Liters (13 gallon). The dosing instruction is confusing so Iím doing 1 dose per week. Iím planning to dose 4 times (4 weeks) because planaria eggs hatch in about 3 weeks to kill any baby planaria.

    Hereís some links to videos that the company made:
