Should I Add to My CUC?

Right now my 25 gallon tank is 5-6 weeks old and has been cycled for ~3 weeks. Currently I have 6x Dwarf Hermits, 6x Nassarius Snails, 6x Cerith Snails, 2x Peppermint shrimp, 1x Emerald Crab. Id like to know if I could get more hermits and snails for the tank so they keep the algae down or will they run out of food if I have that many? I have 37lbs of live rock (half was marco rock / was actual live rock)

What snails will clean the sand bed of algae?

Your CUC is fine for now. I wouldn't add more till you need to, or until you current CUC can't handle the algae load. In my 26g nano I have almost know algae as its only been running for 12 weeks, so I give my CUC dried seaweed or an algae wafer. You could do one of those two food source if they need some.
