Magnolia leaf advice?

4086 4
A few people near us own magnolia trees, and I regularly collect the dry leaves and boil them, then add them to my vivarium for the frogs.
I'd like to do something like this with my aquarium, just add a bunch of them to the tank for the cories to mess around in. Will they release a lot of tannins? I don't mind if they release a little bit, but I don't want to add more to what the wood is causing, because then I wouldn't see my fish.

That sounds like grandiflora. How big are the trees they come from? If the boiled out water turns out looking like weak tea, then the water in your tank probably won't be affected much.
