Liquid Ferts and Carbon, Good or Bad?

I recently introduced carbon to remove tannins in my water and was wondering if activated carbon removes liquid excel, nitrogen, potassium, etc from my water column?

I can't find a definitive answer online.

Thanks for the suggestion. I already do weekly water changes. I just added the carbon because I introduced some new driftwood and wanted the tank to be clearer when I got back from work. It was more of a quick fix.

Is it bad to run carbon in my filter permanently? I just want to make sure it does not render my ferts and excel useless.
