Did I do something stupid?

I bought some macro algae today to be more specific it's calerpa. Is this going to take over my tank? My new Emerald Crab was eating some of it, but I doubt he'll be able to eat it all. I was reading through the archives on this stuff, and it sounds like it's more detrimental than helpful.

29g FOWLR- 2 Percula Clowns
2 Emerald Mithrax Crab, 5 Nassarius Snails, 3 Astrea Snails, 1 mexican turbo snails, 1 Chocolate Chip Star, 1 Peppermint Shrimp, and 27lbs of LR 2lbs tonga branch and 25lbs fiji rock

Maiden's Hair, Calerpa, and Red Kelp macro algae.

The fuge is the best place for it, it will slowly vanish in the main tank.
