Most likely some will die due to starvation.

Snails will slowly control your algae as they find the spot.
My tank is full with diatom before n recently my snails just take them away,
u will know they snails had worked on the algae, they will leave marks. Hehe
hermits r good as well, but watch out they take down your snails for new home.

My 46gal has 7 hermits 8 netrite snails 13 nassarius snails
2 peppermint shrimps as clean up. They r Doing pretty good, so if u about the same, u should be fine.
I don't know if I have too much but they r doing good.

Urchins tend to knock over unstable rock formations and corals. If you can live with resetting things once in a while they are fine.
PS: I have three that hitched a ride in. One white and two black. Other then the occasional knocking over of something they don't bother at all.

Go easy on those Hermits, they can wipeout your snails if they don't have enough food. They also kill for new and larger snail shells.
I removed all but three Hermits from my setup.
