Magnolia Leaves

Does anyone have an opinion on Magnolia Leaves in a new Shrimp tank? We have a tree in our backyard and plenty of leaves on the ground. I just grabbed a few off the ground here in this attachment. They definitely are somewhat broad leaved and look like a smaller version of the Indian Almond leaf. The dried ones I have attached are also very close in color.

As per a shrimp group, magnolia seems to generally be fine to use... guess maybe that list needs updating? It is by no means complete.

If they are picked off the ground, make sure that there were no fertilizers or pesticides used in the area. Maybe over kill, but I bake mine and then boil them to be sure I don't introduce any pests into my tanks.
