Adding cuc from lfs to QT tank

I have a full time up and running QT tank with two fully QT fish in. I've had a major hair algae out break and want to add a cuc. A emerald cap and a turbo snail but Im worried about introduction of parasites.

My lfs tanks are mixed with fish, corals and cuc. What would be the best way to minimize risk of introducing badies?

Just put them in the display, you don't need to QT cuc members.

Several bad things can hitchhike on CUC shell and exoskeletons.

Yep. I don't think I will risk it.
