Many say reef sand with live rock and micro algea.

I dunno, I think a skimmer is a really nice thing to put in a sump. As far as the wet/dry media skip the bioballs. Many prefer using live rock rubble as it is covered in microfauna.

Most LFS will seel it. Or if you know any body with it ask for a little bit.
