Seachem Flourish and activated carbon

Hey guys I just started using Seachem Flourish and excel in my 10 gallon planted tank. I have a fluval filter with activated carbon in it and I was just wondering if the activated carbon will remove the fertilizers or anything... should I remove the carbon completely?

Any affect it might have on ferts is minimal if that.

To some degree, activated charcoal will remove chelated metals that are in Flourish.

Most people just remove the carbon and save it for when it is needed (e.g. removing medication from the water).
