Fluval media ?

Changing my Aquaclear 70 to Fluval 406. Adding media that is in Aquaclear to Fluval for bacteria starter.
How should placement of media go? Bottom to top--
I have Matrix , Ammonia remover packs (3), Purigen, carbon (4) packs, BioMax (2) packs, BioFoam (2)
Looks like BioFoam on bottom, BioMax and Matrix next tray, Carbon and Purigen in next tray and ammonia in top tray??
4 trays with 2 spaces in each side by side

Why so many different chemical medias? You don't need any of them.

The media stack should follow the direction of flow. Starting with your most course filter pad, next medium filter pad, then fine filter pad if you use it, then chemical, last bio.
