    so i was looking into my tank today and i saw a ton of these tiny little polyp things attached to my anubias stems and my decoration and i was just wondering what they were. They look like mini sea anemone flowing in the current, except its a freshwater tank so idk :p

    If they are Hydra, they sometimes attack small fish.

    Fenbendazole will kill Hydra.

    well boo, maybe my mollies and bladder snails will eat them? I read that in an article so here's hoping. Would the hydra pose any threat to my shrimp or dwarf crayfish? And am i correct in assuming that Fenbendazole is safe for crustacean
