There is a product available called No Planaria, it is extract of betel nut and apparently harmless to fish/shrimps/filter, although it will also kill snails. Shrimp forums seem very excited by it!

Another new option from member Bungy here

Quote:

I breed shrimps and occasionally see Planaria which in a shrimp tank this is bad news - I use this stuff from Benebachi which works great and no harm to the shrimp.
