DIY python brass question

Hi all. Just wondering if I could use a brass hose-barb adapter for my python system. looks like this: 1/2Barbx3/4FPT Adapter

I know about copper leaching from the brass, but with the water being in contact with the piece for such a short time as the tank fills, will this leaching amount to anything significant? Thanks for your help.

Probably a lot less than all the copper pipe in the house that the water comes out of first.
If you put off what you can do today until tomorrow it will never get done cause tomorrow never comes. It's always today.
