I already have a 10 gallon refugium hanging on the back of my 75. I was wondering if i could use this section of my sump and have an additional one? The only thing in there is the intake for my sump which is basically a 2" vinyl tubing with pretty weak to moderate flow. The sump is completely sectioned off, so i was thinking i could put a clip on light and some sand, rock and caulerpa? its a pretty big section (about 5 gallons) so i was thinking i could make use of it. How does this sound?

Just make sure the sand does not get sucked up bye your intake tube, if you use the first chamber where the egg crate is you should be good. Others will chime in.
