from what I've gathered from other sites --> cinnamon sticks have antimicrobial properties. so if one makes a cave or similar hiding structures in an aquarium using these sticks then the baby shrimp and fry hiding in it will be naturally protected by its antimicrobial properties.
Antibacterial and antifungal thanks to essential oils and tannins
Dosage: 1 cinnamon stick (use organic True or Ceylon cinnamon - not Cassia cinnamon, its cumarin content would be too high - and never any decorative cinnamon sticks from floristics) with a length of 5 to 7 cm to 20 l of tank water, the stick( may remain in the tank after treatment

How to Identify Real Cinnamon
Know what you are buying !
What is REAL Cinnamon? - Real Cinnamon - A symbol of, quality and exquisite taste. That's what you'll experience with your first taste of Indus Organics' premium Gourmet Cinnamon (Cinnamomum Zeylanicum). Go ahead and try it: You can taste our sweet gourmet cinnamon right out of the bag without the spicy or hot taste of ordinary cinnamon Cassia. And no, we haven't added any sugar!. We don't sell Cassia since we care about your liver. Due to the presence of a moderately toxic component called Coumarin, European health agencies have recently warned against consuming high amounts of cassia. Coumarin is known to cause liver and kidney damage in high concentrations. True Ceylon cinnamon has negligible amounts of coumarin.Federal Institute of Risk Management in Germany advises people to stop using Casssia due to it medical impact on liver. Ceylon Cinnamon has between 2-5 ppm of coumarin compared to Cassia (2000-5000 ppm). Our Ceylon Cinnamon is tested at US lab for Coumarin content. Ceylon Cinnamon has about 0.001 milligram of Coumarin per tea spoon. Cassia has 1000 times more Coumarin than Ceylon Cinnamon. Not All Cinnamon are the Same
Cinnamon from Ceylon is quite different from the Cassia commonly sold in the United States. Our cinnamon is the original, sought after by the Romans, Marco Polo, and later European traders who finally found "the source" in Ceylon, now Sri Lanka. (Zeylanicum is the Latin word for Ceylon). Cinnamon Zeylani-come, also known as True Cinnamon, is native to Sri Lanka. By contrast, the majority of ground cinnamon currently sold in the United States is actually Cinnamomum Cassia. Cassia is cultivated in China and Indonesia from the aromatic bark of the Chinese cinnamon tree. The corky outer bark is not removed in the production of cassia, which is more pungent and robust than True cinnamon. It is not as delicate, sweet or subtle as the cinnamon produced in Sri Lanka.
A Difference for Good Health
Cinnamon is antimicrobial and also restrains the growth of fungi and yeast, making it potentially useful in the treatment of allergies. Cinnamon also holds promises for people with diabetes, because it appears to stimulate insulin activity thereby helping the body to process sugar more efficiently. You see, that cinnamon roll may not only taste good, but be good for you, too!. There has been recent studies on Cinnamon suggesting their usage for blood sugar control. Paul Crawford (firstname.lastname@example.org) has done work on effectiveness of Cinnamon. Ceylon Cinnamon has been researched for many usages. Visit the latest studies.
Cinnamon Keeps you alert
Doctors at Atlantic health in NJ suggests that Cinnamon helps you feel alert by possibly increasing blood flow to the brain. Try adding Ceylon Cinnamon to the morning cup of coffee or tea. We have created a blend of spices for making Organic masala chai at home. This Masala Chai blend is made with ceylon cinnamon, cardamom pods, cloves, fennel seeds and malabar black peppercorns. Why go to big coffee shops to get masala chai?.

Taste: Real or True Cinnamon is sweet and delicate where as Cinnamon Cassia is strong to peppery
Color: Real Cinnamon is a tan color, whereas Cinnamon Cassia is a reddish brown to dark brown.
Look: Cinnamon Cassia bark is thicker because its outer layer isnï¿½t stripped off. For that reason, Cassia sticks curl inward from both sides toward the center as they dry. Real Cinnamon sticks curl from one side only and roll up like a newspaper as shown above.
Feel: The surface of Cinnamon Cassia is rough and uneven, whereas Real Ceylon Cinnamon bark is smooth.
Usage: Real Ceylon Cinnamon is perfect in sweet and subtle dishes that require a delicate flavor.
