My reef was semi-predator for almost a year. My CUC consisted of Asterina starfish lol. I also used a Tuxedo Urchin for a long time but he was there from the beginning. I tried adding additional urchins along the way with no luck (including longspine urchins). Your best CUC is probably going to be fish.

You could try some x-large Turbo snails. I would also try a longspine urchin. As far as fish, it is going to be a gamble due to your current stocking, but maybe give a foxface a try?
 

How are you accomplishing water flow in your reef tank?
