Crabs would be part of an excellent diet for the trigger since they need something to help wear down their teeth. You might do some research and find out a foxface will work in your tank they do eat certain algae.

Lawnmower blenny would be a nice meal for your eel if it can fit in its mouth.

Do you know what is causing your algae?
