Anyone use cinnamon sticks in tanks? Thinking about popping in a boiled cinnamon stick for my Neocaridina anybody tried them.
These are suppose to be a aphrodisiac for Caridina not sure about Neo's if anything they will make a nice place for the baby shrimp to hide and more surface area for biofilm.

Haha, and if you scoop a cup full of water from your tank you can make a nice cup of tea.

I have not heard of this but will do some searching on the subject,
Tank - AquaOne 380    Filter - Inbuilt 400lph    Heater - 55w    Substrate - AquaOne White Gravel    Plants - Live Pine Needles

Have some in my tank. Make sure to boil it. My shrimp seem more interested In the cholla than the cinnamon though

There is sure a lot of stuff suggested to put in tanks, if I put everything in there would be no room for shrimp, lol.
