Live rock rubble, macro algae, pods, etc.

Here's a good read.

You want algae to grow in the fuge so you shouldn't have any inverts haha. That's the whole purpose of a fuge. To grow algae and to allow small animals to reside in (pods, worms, etc). The only thing I would put in a fuge is something to eat any crap that gets in like a serpent star or nassarius snails.
