Carbon will adsorb some of your trace elements that you are adding for the
plants. Some brands are also reputed to leach phosphates. Use it if you
want. I don't use it in any of my tanks unless I am attempting to remove
medicine. Most of my tanks are fish only, and the need for, or the efficacy
of, carbon escapes my ken.
