New sump plan!

Ok so, I have been on this forum asking for people's advice(thanks again J33p!) and I have decided to turn my sump into a refugium
But before I do anything I wanna hear everyone's input and what worked best for them!
Should I have sand? Should I have live rock with the chaeto? Are mangroves necessary? What about starfish?
I'm sorry I asking so many questions but after spending hundreds of dollars on my 75 gallon I want to make sure I had everything perfect...here's the sump I had setup now
I want to turn the middle chamber into a refugium

Yeah I have a few questions that's why I made this thread, how nice of a light will I need?
I have heard just a cheap light from home depot or Walmart would be fine for just chaeto

Ok, and will I need a sand bed? Where do I put all this stuff, I mean what needs to be under it? Or should I just place it on the set bottom of the middle chamber?
