They should be fine actually, but in all honestly, if it were me, I would get a new filter. One that's rated at least for a 60 gallon. It would really help your flow.

My filter is moving around 200 gal per hour and when I have my powerhead on full it moved 400 gph but that tends to make tank more cloudy

The filter pads will absorb that, but by extra because you'll need to change them often for a little while.

I wouldnt, but maybe someone else will chime it. Go to the fish store and ask for a roll of poly pad I think it's called? It's blue on one side and white on the other. I ordered some from intank and got three rolls for like 8 bucks I think. Then you just cut to fit your filter.

Ok so I thoroughly clean the sponges and media and put them in the hob filter and the cloudiness has improved dramatically
