Galvanized steel in shrimp tank?

I'm looking for a mesh material to pt my Christmas moss in to make a mat. Is galvanized steel ok to use? It's all that is available at local hardware stores. I know it will rust eventually but I've read that takes a while. I read the coating is zinc? I'm not sure on zinc's effects in a tank.

Does anyone know if galvanized steel is ok in a shrimp tank, and if not, some suggestions on other materials to use?
