Marineland Contour 3 questions

I have a Marineland Contour 3 thatís heavily planted with anubias. The tank is about a month old, so far everything looks great but I have a few questions about a setup like this.

Im not using CO2 but would Excel benefit this kind of system?

The soil is Brightwell Aquatics Rio Escuro-F should I stick a root tab in there, if so which brand is recommended?

Should I remove the carbon from the filter cartridges?

And final question, other than a betta do I have any fish options?

Sorry for the delay in responding, ive been out of town. Thanks for the reply, i will remove the carbon from the filter pad later today.

I can try and get a few updated pictures tomorrow, to get rid of the glare i have to turn off all the lights in the hallways at my office.

Any thoughts about the other questions?
