Default Are toxic plants fine with fishes?

I've got a Devil's Ivy. But it is suppose to be toxic if eaten, by humans, and will cause diareah. I don't know if this will be true with tropical fishes and plecos.

I have harlequins, cardinals, bristlenose pleco, rainbowshark.

I was thinking that the bristlenose might try eating it, but wouldn't it taste the bad taste of it and then stop eating it?

thank you

P.S.- I know its not a true aquatic plant, but I already have 1 submerged in a 10 gallon and its fine. But its with goldfish and they don't eat them so yea....

- devil's ivy is also known as Money Plant, Pothos, Silver Vine

If it is indeed toxic and a primary terrestrial plant, why would you even consider putting it in an aquarium??
I got off the porch and ran with the big dogs. Now I can't get back on the porch!
