Bronze fittings?

I'm replacing my Oberdorfer n202-15m pump and just wondering what fittings to use. I have a 3/8 NPT to 5/8 barb elbow and a straight 3/8 NPT to 5/8 barb nipple on the old one, I don't know if it is bronze or brass.

I read that brass fittings don't work well with bronze, and while buying fittings made of brass does not seem to be a problem, I'm not able to find any bronze fittings with 3/8 NPT anywhere.

Wonder what others used? Is brass ok? Plastic?
