What is your preferred macro algae to populate a refugium with?

What is your preferred macro algae to populate a refugium with? This is a clean start fuge. Dragon's Tongue Algae, Blue Hypnea Algae, Chaetomorpha Algae, Something else? The fuge will actually have a display section as well.

Those are great choices. Ulva is a fast growing, very palatable green macro algae, that I like a lot. Great nutrient uptake, and everything from pods to tangs love it. It undulates nicely in the current too.

As many naturalists and environmentalists have suggested, we should set aside our arrogance,
our desire to conquer and control everything, and walk hand in hand with Mother Nature. -Walter Adey
