When Nitrites and Ammonia are stable at zero for at least a week, I see no problem adding a few snails and hermits.

You might have been a little hasty here. Hopefully new the editions don't send you back into a cycle.

What kind of coral is it?

EDIT: I see they are zoanthids. What kind of light do you have?

Your light schedule might be promoting that hair algae you have. Dial it back down to eight hours for a few days...
