Macro for my refugium

Ok, So I ordered me a Trigger Systems Ruby 36 Elite.
I want opinoins on what should go in the refugium section. I was thinking different types of macro to help with water qaulity? I have a lil bit of Chaeto now, but what other types would be helpful?
I am running timed lighting so I hope whatever goes in would not go sexual.
I currently have a 120 fowlr with a Coral Beauty, 2 Ocel Clowns, 2 Green Chromis, a Yellow Tail Damsel, and a Sailfin Tang.
Any and all help will be appreciated.
Thanks Guys!!

Stick with the cheato for now and see how it does. If you want to add more later on, check out reefcleaners for other ones. If you are running the light on a timer and not worried about it going sexual, you can try the penny macro they offer with orders as you won't know what it will be.

I'm trying to remember who ordered 2 macro samplers for pretty cheap for their angler tank...it'll come to me later I'm sure. But they might be a good person to ask this question too. I would just stick with the cheato for starters though.

Run your sump lights opposite your display. Some macros can go a sexual and release toxins into water. Cheato is one that usually doesn't you will be fine with that one as long as its spinning or you flip every few days to make sure all sides get light,
