I'd really recommend getting rid of both the chemical pads. A properly developed biofilter will handle the ammonia with far more aplomb and dependability than the pad. Also, your fish will be fine with some nitrate in the water. The better was to control nitrates is with water changes. Even with a system that removed 100% of the nitrates you'll still want to do water changes to replenish trace minerals.
the powerhead sucks water from my tank, then to my filter boxes through rainbars, the boxes has small/big holes underneath each trays.i just bought that kind of trickle type of filter because it is now popular here. it has a "mr.aqua" brand from taiwan/japan i dont remember sorry.
i'll be removing my pads as you mentioned and replace it with more ceramic rings and bioballs. BTW the sack that you can see in on trays are zeolites and zerocolor. thank you
