The tannins from the wood will not harm the fish. Some actually prefer it as that's what they live in naturally. In excess it can lower your Ph a lil over time if your Gh is low enough. Not something I would really worry about. If you want it gone you can do multiple water changes or add carbon to your filter.

Over time with enough water changes it come out. The only downside I can see is if it is dark enough some plants can struggle I think due to not getting enough light. Those are most high light plants through. Most low light plants will probably be fine. Tho I don't know as I have never had black water tanks.
