Add a gourami.  Blues work best, (or any of the vriations on blues)  but
they are a bit aggressive.  Dwarf or giant gouramis work too, but they
aren't quite as quick about it.  Hydra are almost a guaranteed sign of over
feeding, so you might want to do a couple of big water changes and cut back
on the feeding before your hydra infestation turns into an algae
