Best way to reduce the blackwater look you get from tannin emission from your driftwood is water changes. It also might help to take out the driftwood every 8-10 months and scrub them down. Generally, you don't want to run carbon in a planted tank, Like Marcel said, it will strip not only unwanted dissolved substances but also desireable nutrients and minerals.
