Less media will fluidise easier, which will cause greater friction. Small particles are bound to get into your impellor again. I would recommend getting a coarser media.
Whether the amount of media is enough, depends on your bioload: consumption rate of Ca and alk by acidifying processes and calcification and precipitation.

The foam in these units is way to porous, i recommend getting a finer foam, especially for the top one.
