You do not want them in there. There are meds to get rid of them, I just cant think of what they are right off hand.

I think you can use fenbendazol to get rid of them.

Most types of gourami will eat hydra, but the 3-spot gourami is most well know for its passion of eating the nasty stuff. If you have a tank big enough and it’s compatible with your fish, you may want to get some kind of gourami for your tank. I’ve found that once you have hydra in your tank, it’ll be extremely hard to get rid of it all, and it’ll keep coming back.
