Cleanup crew suggestions

My 120Gal is almost done with its cycle. The algae has started to take off. The algae growth includes some caulerpa taxifolia, grape, an unidentified leafy species, hair, and a few small brown patches on portions of the glass. I'd like to get a get a cleanup crew to hold off the algae while the tank matures. Does the following look good for the first wave of a cleanup crew?

20 Nassarius
20 Cerith
20 Dwarf Blue Leg Hermits
4 Emerald Crabs

if you have that much algae tho there shouldnt be a problem with everybody finding food for the time being. to stave off carnivorous hermits, provide a few extra shells so they arent tempted to oust the snails.

looks good to me!

The majority if not all of my fish will be under 4". My LFS has a huge emerard mithrax crab, his body is at least 2" wide and I'm sure he could take out a small fish given the chance. If they get out of control I'll remove them.
