Refugium

I have bought a miracle mud sump and I am now trying to look into the best things to grow and put into my refugium. I have never had a sump but I have read caulper is hard to keep under wraps and that maybe mangroves or cheato is a better option. Has anyone got any advice from there experience? Also should I be having clean up crew members in there or just the macro algae?

I'd go with the chaeto because it doesn't go sexual so therefore won't crash
