Here's the fuge. Right now it has sand and some live rock rubble. What's the best thing to put in the fuge?

It could use some macro algae like chaeto or caulpera.

Check out ReefCleaners.org | Clean Up Crews and Macro Algae - Home they are really cheap and usually have a great selection.

You want the macro algae so that it removes the nitrates from your tank helping out your parameters. It will encourage the algae to grow in your fuge rather than in your display tank.

I run my lfuge lights opposite my main top lighting too, it's supposed tohelp balance out ph if you do that.
