Algae control and Fiddler Crabs

I know I shouldn't have fiddler crabs in my tank. Wish the idiot who sold them to me had told me the truth or wish I had read up on them before my purchase. I have two in my 100 gal tank. I used in the past "Jungle" brand No more Algae. I don't think I can use it with the crabs in there,can anyone confirm this?
Can I remove them for a period of time if I do treat the water or not?

Not sure but I think it might be one of those things that will never be completely removed so your best not using it. Maybe we can help with your algae problem a more natural way? Have you tested your water lately using a liquid reagent kit (API or Red Sea)? What tank size? How often and what percentage do you do water changes? What are the other inhabitants of the tank?

Algae Control and Fiddler crabs

I have not tested the water lately. Tank is 100 gal. I change about 1/3 water every mo.
The algae is not that bad. I scrape tank sides about every 2 mo if needed.
I have danios, mollies, neons several types, and I think sliver tetras they are large.
I just have added the algaecide as it seems to help keep it cleaner and clear longer.
