Using the carbon that came with the filter for the first few days won't hurt. You did mention live plants in the first post, so I would not add any bubblers or powerheads. Both will work against the plants.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

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