Help! Algae bloom

I have had a nasty greenish/clear hairy algae bloom in my 10g...I was wondering what additional CUC I could add to get it under control.

I currently have

4 hermit crabs
2 Nassissius snails
1 Cerith Snail

What else would help get it under control?

What are your water params, especially nitrate and phosphate? Adding cuc isn't really a solution to the problem, you will be better off figuring out why your getting the algae rather than looking for something to eat it

Fixing your water is much better than getting an animal to do it for you.
