Algae Problem

I wanted to know what you guys think. I have a pretty bad hair algae infestation. Now I have a Blue Regal that loves it, but is seems she leaves eats it, but still leaves it on the rock, just eats it to the base. I have probobly 20 blue leg hermits also. What can I do to help out with this. I am starting RO water now, and I put some algone in, but the algone has had no effect in 3 weeks. Should I have more clean-up crew, if so, what is would ya'll think for a 55 soon to be reef? I know a blenny may help also. Any other suggestions?

MAybe a Lettuce Nudibrach? I know that if you rget one, it will eat algae until it is gone. The only problem is, it will starve to death when it does... Nudibrachs have a way of eating the algae so that the cells cannot reproduce. I believe they puntcure the cell walls and suck the insides out? for lack of better terms...

You need Mexican red Dwarf Hermit Crabs. They devour hair algae. Check out this site.
