Juwel Compact Filter - anyone have one?

I have a Juwel tank and Juwel Compact Filter
Was curious if anyone else has a similar filter and how they have set it up.

I have the following filtermedia:
1 x Cirax Basket
1 x Fine Sponge (Blue)
1 x Coarse Sponge (Blue)
1 x Nitrate Sponge (Green)
2 x Carbon Sponges (Black)
5 x Poly Pads (White)

Should I use all the sponges + cirax or miss some out, what is best?

I been told it should be from bottom up:

2 x Blue Fine
1 x Cirux
1 x Blue Course
1 x Green
1 x Black
1 x White

Or is there another order you can have?

Aquarium Filtration & Heating | Designed by Fish keepers for fish keepers | Juwel Aquarium UK Filter & Heater Systems

i have searched the web and some say use the cirax and others say dont, although the instructions dont list cirax, other websites say its added above the fine blue

so its a bit confusing, should i add it or should i not or should i have the sponges in a different order?
