Yes that is fine. From what I've seen/read about them they do not restrict water flow and work fine.

I'm not sure if it still filters properly. You could always cut the cartridge open and dump the carbon out. That could be whats causing it to overflow somehow.

I had one of these aquatech 15 filters on my 10g and I had constant problems with it overflowing, even with new pads. I ended up ditching the filter pads and just going with filter floss (100% polyfill). It polishes the water nicely and is dirt cheap.
