I don't I am sorry, hence my using the phrase "I don't think"... All I have is 18yrs dealing with timber of different types and knowing the natural properties of cypress and cedar. It just seems logical to me that anything that can drive away termites or borers (particularly those found here in Australia), would be somewhat less than ideal in an aquarium environment.
Personal opinion...I would love to find out the truth of it, also...
