I would not put anything with lead into a tank.. Lead can leech into water and is highly toxic to fish (and people).

Agree. I know some would argue that the lead leeching from these would be miniscule, but the aquarium is a closed system and all such contaminants should be avoided always.

OK, I have about five pieces I need to remove.
Thanks for the answer to my question and for future questions!
