Other than some rock and some sand, I would give it time to mature some before placing anything "living" in it. That will allow for a greater success in what you are trying to accomplish. The "critters" can easily be transfered from some of your main tanks sand.

After a month or so, you can consider some different types of caulerpa that will aid in the export of the "nasties" in the water and aid in ph control.

>>Here<< is a recent thread where Hara gave some excellent reference types.

after your fuge is cycled- add live rock, sand and caulerpa you should probably add some starter kits from different websites- the more websites the better- it will diversify the refugium. these kits are available from indo-pacific sea farms and www.inlandaquatics.com. good luck with your refugium!
