Needing opinions...

Hello! Just wanting opinions from everyone on what I should do here... I have a 75 gallon display tank and it plumbs into a 55 gallon sump in the next room. Then beside the sump, I have also attached a 30 gallon bow front that already has sand and live rock (also some cheap decorations because my wife insisted on more color!) I had a small saddleback puffer in there that recently passed Now I'm thinking about making it a big Refugium (even though I have a Refugium in the sump) just thought I couldn't go wrong with a bigger Refugium. Bascically do you think I should go more Refugium or another couple of non reef safe fish?
Thanks for anyone's input! Also attaching my setup.

How about making it a tank to grow frags in so you can sell or trade them?

Then I would have to buy another stronger light. Plus I don't know of any trading around where I live. Good idea though, if I can find a cheap light! Do they exact :/

I have a 120 watt led that I scored off eBay for about 160 dollars. Cheapest I've found. Just eBay 120 watt aquarium LED. Just a suggestion.

I've heard of Odyssea T5 HO lights growing corals fine, but they are knockoffs and get hot and some burn out right away.
