I am setting up a new Marine tank , the filter has three baskets, 1 for carbon, 1 for ceramics and 1 for bio balls.
When I put these baskets back into the filter, should they be in any particular order?

Hi! Welcome to the forum!

I would put them in order of how the water hits them, bioballs getting the dirtiest water or the first water that enters the filter compartment, followed by carbon and then the bio media should be getting the cleanest water as in the last stage of waterflow before going back in the tank.

What type of setup do you have by the way?

Just purchased 240 litre open top tank from All Pond Solutions.
So far have put some dry ocean rock and bed of sand into tank.
Next job is to mix water & salt and fill tank
