Skimmer question?

I've been upgrading piece by piece working on getting a 75 gallon reef tank going. I just invested in a sump refugium it's a lil over kill for my 45 gallon and for my soon to be 75 gallon. it has 2 intakes for water coming from tank. I'm only going to need 1. My question is can I use the other tube for the return for my skimmer to help with bubbles?or if anybody has another good idea on what to do with the empty intake?

Yeah, what would be wrong with that? 2 salt water tanks, not like the parameters will be different.

OR kill her first and use the insurance money for a second tank! You can make it a predator tank with something deadly in it for irony's sake.

If you only have one drain and one return in your tank, that's all you can use.

Or will you have 2 drains coming from your tank? Usually 75's only have 1 drain.

I don't think it's necessary, but I guess you could if you were having microbubble problems.
