How much rubble in a refugium?

I was wondering how much rubble people use in their refugiums. Currently I have 1/3 of my refugium dedicated to rubble, 1/3 dedicated to Grape Caulerpa and Chaeto, while the rest is for equipment. I'm wondering if I am using too much rubble.

Currently I have about 25 lbs of live rock in a 20g tank with another 10lbs of rubble in a 10g refugium.
