Would activated carbon ( a substance meant to clean/purify various liquids and gases- common in aquariums! ) be safe to use in the sense of mixing it in with the substrate as a forms of anti-bacterial measure if that's even possible?

Carbon can help with smells and some bacterial growth, but once it starts absorbing impurities it doesn't last forever. It's part of the ABG (Altlanta Bontanical Gardens) mix that many amphibian and reptile keepers use, but mostly as a good growth medium for plants. Safe for hermits, but given the cost, I'm not sure how beneficial it is for them. I use it in one of my insect tanks and one of my reptile tanks.
