    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:

    I just discovered hydra in my dank. Was going to try dosing Fenbendazone. What is a good dosing amount?

    If you don't have a scale.....mix the packet up in a 16oz bottle of water (you might have to dump out a little water first).

    Shake really well to dissolve.

    Divide solution between two clear plastic cups equally.

    When bottle is empty....put a little more water in bottle because there will be undissolved crystals in the bottom.

    Swirl around and divide between each cup to get them as even as possible.

    Each cup will now treat 50 gallons.

    Keep dividing the solution until you get close to your tank size.

    Dose your tank once a day three days in a row.

    25% water change on the 4th day.

    I used SAFEGUARD and it killed the hydras....but it did not kill my fish, shrimps, snails, or plants.
