    Actually NO.
    I will not touch the Fine Pad fro the Eheim's filters, i am talking about the WOOL, (sorry for my mistake) i mentioned before (COTTON) instead.
    So those wool should be in my top 2 filters to create benefit bacteria? Or i can replace them with (Eheim substrate pro)?
    Please take a close look to the below pictures.

    I was staying out of this, since you are dealing with another filter, not the canister as initially discussed, and I've no experience with this. Better help will come from someone who has experience with this different filter, respecting the cotton, etc.

    Thank you any way, your previous answers help me a lot..
    I hope if some one can help me with that, i water start getting high (Nitrite reading 5.0 ppm). I want to be sure that i setup all my 4 filters do be sure that i am doing the right cycling...

    Ditch the cotton. Cotton is only need to make the aquarium look clean. Replacing the cotton less than evey month prevents it from being an effective biological media in the long run.

    So do you think using substrate pro from eheim is better than the cotton and will do a good job with BB??

    I would take the opposite view. The fine pads (white) are the "polishing" mechanical filtration that keeps the water clear. You are not going to have too little biological filtration (unless the tank is overstocked) because bacteria colonize every surface, up to the level needed for the bioload; beyond that it is irrelevant. And with live plants, even less so. But the suspended particulate matter (the water clarity) depends upon the fine mechanical filtration.

    So what i will do, is to keep my LED 2 filters running with fine/medium pads, and i will keep the other eheim external filters with substrate pro.... and some pads as Manufacture Recommendation.
