getting rid of hydra

Does anyone know of a safe and effective way to remove/kill hydra in a tank
that currently contains several juvenile Melanotaenia praecox and some live
plants?  Unfortunately, the hydra are doing as well as the rainbowfish
since I feed the tank baby brine shrimp on a regular basis.  An
acquaintenance mentioned a two day course of Fluke tabs has worked for him
in the past.  What is the active ingredient in this medication?  Has anyone
else used it successfully?  Will it do anything negative to the fish,
plants, or biological filtration?  Any helpful advice is appreciated.

Thanks, David
