    Your cycle still has a way to go.... should start seeing Ni,and Na soon. Dont worry too much about the algae right now...part of cycle. wait until levels are low before adding cleaner crew. A good mix is what your looking for....what do u have for lights and circulation? a lot of both will work well after the cycle.

    p.s. i have a few blue leg hermits ...no trouble just have plenty of empty shells in the tank
