I would say that if there is light then there will be algae so you'd probably want a few snails in there.

I have a light in the fuge....which puts some light on the sump....so you suggest a few snails.......I had 3 big pencil urchin form my tank...that I put in the sump...I was thinking they would take care of the algae's

Tank and fuge/sump look good... A few snails would be fine once you get some algae growing so they have something to eat. Its your choice on what you add the the fuge. Some people want nothing in there some people like a few snails and crabs.
