Carbon bag in my HOB skimmer?

I've done some reading on adding carbon to a SW setup to help keep the water nice and clear.

I've added a bag of carbon to the return chamber on my HOB octopus skimmer. Is this a good idea?

Water seams to be passing through the carbon with ease.

will this have any effect?
