IF it does start to leech tannins over time add some Seachem Purigen to your filter. This stuff works wonders for removing tannins/polishing water. I've gotten to where i don't even bother with boiling the wood anymore after finding out about this stuff.

UV will breakdown tannins and they are also adsorbed by carbon and Polyfilter and you can always resort to one of these methods should you need to. Carbon is the cheapest 'fix' although personally I would use a Polyfilter as you will be able to see once it is exhausted.
