    I was visiting a friend and saw leeches in her tank, whats the best way to get rid of them,

    Tank stocking
    Dwarf Rasboras
    Red Cherry shrimp

    Plants
    Annubias
    Crypts

    Edit

    They are snail leeches.

    I would say borrow a couple of dp for a week or so but the shrimp will be decimated. But is there a possibility of adding another fish an option

    You can try salt. Use 1 heaped tablespoon per 20 litres.
    It may or may not work but it is the only safe thing I can think of.
