converting from wet dry to refugium

I currently have a tang, clown fish, and fire fish, with very minimal live rock. I am building a refugium to convert to, and was planning on using the bio-balls from the wet dry in the refug for a while for the bacteria.

Is there anything I need to do, or be careful of when getting rid of the wet dry and converting to the refug?

-50gal tank
-20gal tall sump / refugium.
-About 15-20 lbs of live rock
-60 lbs (3") of sand.
-2x65w power compact lights
-2x18w power compact in the refug.
-bak pak 2R
-3 LARGE feather dusters all differebt colors
-orange spotted goby
-fire fish
-12 or so hermits
-50-60 nassairus snails
-about 12 turno snails
-emrald crab

Give your bio-balls a good salt-water bath. I would try and get all the bad bacteria off before putting them in the refuge, they will still hold all the good stuff but maybe you can get rid of some of the waste.
