seeding fuge?

I am installing a sump/fuge and intend on puting sand in the fuge. Do i need to seed the sand with sand from my main tank or will it seed itself with the flow from my DT?

65 gal reef
2 PC's 192W each , 20 gal sump/fuge
4 false clowns, 2 firefish, cardinal, midas blennie, toadstool, zoos, shrooms, trumpet coral, torch, pagoda, frogspawn, poylps, red open brain, devils hand, hermits, snails, 3 cleaner shrimp, coral banded and a emerald crab.

Bacteria will seed from the DT, pods will take longer if you don't seed them. Anything that doesn't have part of it's lifecycle in the water column won't be seeded. I'd put a cupful of the DT substrate in the fuge sand, along with some cleanup crew guys.
