Tree Leaves(ginko) in a planted tank

I decided to put some leaves in my tank for my rams to play in.

Oak leaves are free and break down slowly and have a good track record. I grabbed 6 and I'm going to let them dry for a while and see how it goes.

But my township must have a thing with Ginkgo trees, here in Chicago(insert shrugging smiley face here), there are at least 6 planted on the street I live and the park a few minutes away has 8 or more.

I wonder how ginkgo leaves would work, they seem thinner.

Anybody have any thought/ideas. Are they dangerous in their 'raw' form??

Will my fish have better memories?

I grabbed one to dry just in case.

20L My Other Tank: OEBT Shrimp
40B Inlaws Tank: 2 goldfish
75 Main Tank w/ sump: 5 Glossolepis pseudoincisus, 5 Melanotaenia boesemani, 10 Melanotaenia praecox, 5 Melanotaenia lacustris, some cories, a bn pleco and rainbow fish fry
