Clean up Crew for 13 gallon Reef

I've been wondering what sort of clean up crew I should have for my 13 gallon reef, as of right now it consists of:
2 Emerald crabs
2 blue leg hermit crabs
and 2 snails of which types I am not sure

I've been having a problem lately with hair algae, and Recently cut back my lighting schedule to help fight that, but are there any good CUC members that eat that? Any other inverts I should add into the tank?

I would ditch the emeralds as i have seen people say they get really mean as they grow. I believe if you do keep one i read it should be 1 to every 50 gallons. I would get some more blue legs. I would also get some small snails like ceriths or nerites. I hate the trochous snails they tend to die if not enough algae ime. I am only in the SW hobby for 4 months though so I am still learning as well.
