This is fine as is. In a planted tank I would just remove the carbon. The pads in this filter will act exactly the same as a sponge. There must be some sort of pad, it will be white or maybe bluish, and the water flows through it. Or it may be a chunk of filter cotton/wool. Doesn't matter, it's the important part as it clears the water.

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 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]
