Yes. Even then you don't need a large CUC. CUC is just a clean up for aesthetics reasons. You still need to remove the underlying issue causing the algae to grow.

If your tank looks like it does in your avatar, you don't have food for crabs and snails. They will die of starvation. Dav3 is correct. you can have a beautiful salt water tank without a single snail or crab.

+1 on the tank being clean, mines been going for five weeks. I have ten red leg hermits and ten trochus snails. The hermits get a few sinking pellets now and then because I don't overfeed, but the snails look pretty hungry. They seem to get enough from the LR, but there's no algae for them yet.
