I'd argue that the algae was on its way out on its own and the CuC only played a small part. Algae usually presents itself over various stages of the tank maturing. GHA was awful in my tank around the 1 year mark. It lasted a couple months. All I did was try to keep things stable and remove what I could by hand. I added a small addition to my CuC including a long spine urchin. Eventually it stopped growing. Coraline kicked in a lot more and I haven't seen GHA since. I recently had a cyano break out. That was due to a shift in nitrate. I let them get away from me. Through a series of large water changes and drop in nitrate, cyano started growing. Even then I didn't change anything. Within a month it was almost completely gone.
