Could I get more value here? Studying my small pots: BTN VS BB SRP. 10NL 6 Max on Ignition / Bovada

Blinds: $0.05/$0.10 (5 Players) BN: $10.00 (Hero)
SB: $10.05
BB: $10.56
UTG: $9.60
CO: $6.99
SB is an unknown player.
Preflop ($0.15) Hero is BN with A 5
2 folds, Hero raises to $0.25, SB calls $0.20, BB folds
Since Villain cold called from the SB, I think, in this pool, that it's likely he is one of the weak players with the tendencies: High VPIP / Sticky / Passive.
Flop ($0.60) 5 3 K
SB checks, Hero bets $0.28, SB calls $0.28
Taking a look in Power-Equilab, I'm conflicted between betting medium size or large on the flop for value with a strong hand like this (mid pair+nut flush draw), or c-betting small simply because I'm in position against a capped range. The idea behind sizing up to my 75%, is it would be a good exploit against the pool where players tend to be sticky.
Turn ($1.16) 5 3 K 6
SB checks, Hero bets $0.73, SB calls $0.73
Here I'm slightly concerned about who has the nut advantage, as villain likely has 74s that he could have called from the SB. I think that he has the nut advantage, do I have this right?
River ($2.62) 5 3 K 6 8
SB checks, Hero checks
I'm pretty sure it's too thin to bet here. 3x may fold, and I may just be value betting myself when he calls with 6x, 8x, or the pocket pairs such as 77 or 99.
Final Pot BN wins $2.49
Rake is $0.13

My question is if I could bet more on flop and turn for value given pool tendencies to call loose postflop, and be sticky. Furthermore, since recreationals are passive post-flop at this stake, I can be less concerned that I will be x-raised and be blown off my equity (~75% on the flop with medium made hand + nutFD against his range).

Let me know your thoughts, I have my ranges and data from power-equilab for the flop below.

1st image is the range BTN RFIs

2nd image shows that middle pair + Nut flush (As5s) draw has 75% equity against SBs range

3rd image shows SB's range categorized on Flop. It's interesting to see that we don't have a range advantage against SB on this flop (50.23% VS 49.77%
