Well if you want a better one a Penguin 100 or 150 would be perfect for that tank.
Anyways it is just that simple. You don't want to use carbon, don't put it in. There's nothing to balance, nothing new to add. Just don't put it in and you're good to go. If you've got plants I'd recommend not using it anyways. Any ferts you add will just get sucked up by the carbon.
