At this point wait a little. The inverts will help keep the fuge clean but until some algae builds up they wont have much to graze on.

my fuge has chaeto, sand, and many small snails i found at the lfs (i believe theyre Stomatella sp.) and also i put few snails in there occasionally to eat some diatoms off the glass.
other than that, my fuge is empty. the pods do the cleaning up

Get some more LR rubble..... Make piles of it so the pods have a place to grow.
