What source water are you using? What is your Nitrate reading?

Slightly off topic- CUC = cucumber or clean up crew?

I had the same stuff it sounds like. I used this: Top Fin® Glass Scrapers - Aquarium Maintenance - Fish - PetSmart, well worth the $4 I spent on it.

How is your lighting, old bulbs can cause algae. Try cutting your lighting hours. Phosphates in your water can feed algae. I would recommend using RO DI water.

Algae problems are a common thing on new saltwater setups. I have well over 100 nerite snails in my 75g plus the other snails and hermits as well as a few brittlestarfishes.
