LR in sump

I have a 3 chamber sump.
1st is intake with protein skimmer
2nd is refuge
3rd is return

I would like to keep just the sand, mud
And algea in the refuge, so my question is

Can I put all my LR rubble in the return
chamber?

Will that cause me problems down the road?

Thank You in advance, everyone here has been
absolutely wonderfull in helping me out.

Ideally you don't want anything in your return chamber. Less chance some something interfering with the pump. Center chamber is where my sand/algae/LR is. You can but just check the intake frequently for buildup
