Fluval 406 media set up

I have this canister filter for my 55 gallon tank and I wanted an opinion on the organization of the baskets. It flows through the two y'all sponges first and to the bottom of the can then water goes up through...
1. Bio foam sponges x2
2. Ceramic bio rings (1 basket full)
3. Polishing pads & purigen x2 each
4. Purigen & polyfil (filter floss) x2 ea.

There is a little polyfil in baskets 2 & 3 also.

This sound like a good set up info?
What do y'all have ?

I have a 305 and all i run in them are the first two mechanical songs and all the compartments have pot scrubies. Basically my setup is a big bio filter.
