Sump/Fuge Question

I have a fuge in the middle of my 40 gallon sump. I want to grow macro. What all do I need to put in the fuge to accomplish this?
Also how thick of a sand bed do I need in there?
Can I have LR in the fuge as well? Small peices?

A sand bed thik enough to give the macro someplace to anchor. Same with the rock. The rock will allow the macro to achor and you can use it to hold it down. The fuge will also become a home for pods to live and flurish.

You need to provide light to the fuge area. Provide light in a reverse photo cycle so that when the tanks light is on the fuge is off and when the fuge is on the tank light is off.

Thanks fish...that answers it.
Also does it matter how much light I need for the fuge? Was thinking about a 20 gallon light kit from something like petsmart...
