    Will the addition of activated carbon to canister filter affect macro and micro nutrient levels in the water column? ( EI dosing with dry ferts)

    Carbon won't particularly affect the inorganic salts you're dosing. It will remove organics (tannins, components of fish wastes) until it gets saturated.
