Carbon looses its effectiveness pretty quickly. It can maybe last a few weeks in a unplanted, tannin free, low stock tank. If you fertilize heavy though I wouldn't expect it too last more then a few days. Carbon grabs a lot of stuff out of the water, some bad, some good, most is irrelevant.
.... I'm probably drunk.
This is how I lurk
so would getting something like this: Tetra Whisper Bio-Bag Cartridges - Filter Media - Fish - PetSmart and not putting the charcoal in work?

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
