Default Nickel Stir Bar?

So I built a stir plate, and I tested it with a small chain of nickel-coated neodymium magnets as my stir bar. Everything seemed to work just fine, so I ordered a teflon coated stir bar, but it turns out the one I got is a bit too large and gets thrown pretty quickly. The chain of magnets worked fine, so I'm wondering, will a nickel-coated stir bar (vs one of the teflon coated ones) have any adverse effects on a yeast starter?
