You shouldn't use that either way as they do become nitrate traps without regular maintanence. If you are going to use it, then i'd say it's a bit of an over kill. What size is the filter rated for? If it's more then 40-55g then yes it's over kill if it's around 40 then it'll be fine, given your bio-load isn't too terribly high.
