try not feeding the tank for a few days to motivate the fish to eat them.
if that doesnt work, I'm pretty sure the only sure-fire way to get rid of them is with chemicals. Rid-a-snail is copper based and should be toxic to all inverts. Just remove your snails and inverts you like, remove all your driftwood and dry it out, then dose the tank. Just do lots of waterchanges to remove the medication before you reintroduce inverts.
Are you sure they can't move? I thought I had read where the "can" ?? Of coarse they probably just float in the current and then attach themselves to stuff.
These are what I am calling Hydras just so we are on the same page (These are hydras right?).
What about using fenbendazole?? I have heard of ppl using this to kill them. My problem is I have tons of MTS in this tank and I don't think I can get all of them out. I am guessing any thing strong enough to kill Hydras will also kill the snails??
