Ive added a prefilter to my Aqauclear 20. Wanted thoughts from the group on ditching the small bag of ceramic bio rings in order to make more room for another layer if fine filtration. 

My thought process is its such a small amount of bio rings that its overall contribution to maintaining healthy bacteria is small compared to what is left in the mechanical filtration. Am I overthinking this?

Hi, in my opinion you might want to delay it and do it slowly to let the bacteria colonies catch up. So maybe remove one in a few days, then wait a week, then remove on or two, then keep doing that until you're out of rings? I might also want to keep the rings somewhere else so that you still have a backup if things go south? I have no idea if my idea will work, or is overcomplicated, just my 2 cents.
