Hi Sara:
You might try ghost shrimp (or is it 'glass shrimp'?).  When I used to keep
these, it seems like they were willing and able to eat almost any tiny
creature they could get hold of - although I didn't have hydra when I had
the shrimp, so I'm just guessing about that.

The shrimp would also eat algae and snail eggs, if these were scraped off
of the side of the tank first.
