Hydra. Harmless. Keep up ur water changes and keep the water pristine. Remove any extra food. When u suction vac it'll be removed.

If the tank is new, they'll disappear with time as the tank matures, certain gourami eat them. Advice given above is spot on

May have come in with new plants or so.
Maybe you brought some in a while ago and didn't notice.
Bettas and gourami will eat them.

Nothing to worry about, unless you have fry in your tank. They may harm tiny fish.

Yes freshwater version of sea anemone. They may be introduced in aquarium on plants.
They actually seem really awesome haha. I wouldn't mind having them in my tank
