[AGA Member] Hydra in tank

Hi David,

     It's Robert from Killitalk. The very best hydra killer is Flubendazole 
5%. It has never harmed a plant in my tanks; does not color the water and 
works within 48 hours. Check Charlie Harrison's webpage. He sells it. Jehmco 
and Florida Fish Farmer's Co-op also sell it. Use 1/2 tsp per 30 gallons. 
Once the hydra are gone do a water change. It is wonderful stuff. Are you 
feeding baby brine to this tank? Usually baby brine causes a hydra outbreak 
-- they love the stuff. Gouramis work but are slow and you have to starve 
them a bit to get them to munch on the hydra.
