Hi krisha,
Yes, activated carbon will absorb gasses (including CO2) and impurities (including ferts) from the water.

You can however use carbon in a newly setup tank, when removing meds or discoloration from water. Carbon will run it's course within a few weeks & be useless anyways except for biological filtration.
