Fish to eat hydra in shrimp tank

GrandGinkgo

I have hydra in my 10g shrimp tank and I am looking for a fish to eat it. I'm leaning towards chili rasboras because they are small and wont eat many shrimplets. But I'm not sure if they will gobble up lots of hydra. Also, I have seen people recommending sparkling gourami but they get up to 1.5 inches (compared to chili rasboras with 0.7 inches) and I am afraid they might eat some of my shrimplets. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Not a fish, but zebra apple snails are known to eat hydra. Perhaps, if you can find them, they'd be a good choice.

I went to my LFS and they don't have any zebra apple snails. But I did find some rosy poached which I've heard seek out hydra constantly so I got them.
