A couple weeks ago I added an additional medium super on top of the bottom brood box (also a medium box) as I thought they could use the room. At that time there were still 3-4 empty frames (no drawn foundation). Since adding the additional medium, there are still empty frames in the bottom ... I'm wondering if they're overwhelmed with too much space now.

Am I overthinking this? Should I just leave them well enough alone ... or would it be an option to simply remove the top super I added and combine the frames into the bottom box again (until they really do need it)?

Perhaps one problem I see with doing the combine is that there's a frame of brood in the top super ... moving it back down to the bottom could screw up their brood nest I'm thinking (don't mess with the brood nest I keep hearing!).
