Not a good enough picture to indentify them. How do they/do they move?

Are they in the water column or only on the glass?

Worm like or round?

They're just on the glass, they're worm like with 4 antenna type things on the end away from the glass.

Fenbendazole kills Hydra pretty quick. I got fishbendazole from Dr's. Foster and Smith, or there's a dog dewormers you can get. I don't remember the name.

They are like mini sea anemones, having stinging tentacles, a central mouth and gut and a base that sticks them temporarily and can be unstuck.

They reproduce by budding a baby off the side of the adult.

The only time they have been a problem for me was when I was breeding daphnia in my water butt outside. I cleaned the water butt thouroughly and haven't seen them since.

As said they would be a problem in the fry tank.
