Do a lot of reefers keep macro algaes in fuge without mud??
Just as good at nitrate reduction?

I have live rock around my skimmer and miracle mud and chaeto in my fuge. I don't keep any rock in my fuge section though. I have some hair algae growing in the sump, but I attribute that to my refugium light running 24/7. DT is free and clear of any algae with the exception of one small patch in the sand. I attribute this patch that showed up to not changing my GFO in a timely manner. It is now receding.

If it's in the sump, so much the better. It's out of sight so let it work for you ime/imo.

I was answering your second post. Cyano wasn't in question. Apologies.
