The study investigated the effects of supplementing cinnamon powder (C. cassia) to red Tilapia (Oreochromis sp.) diets at various rates (control, C1 – 0.5%, C2 – 1.0%, and C3 – 1.5%) on hematological parameters at three time periods before infected, five and ten days post-infected (DPI) S. agalactiae at a density of 106 CFU/mL. The hematological parameters and dimensions of erythrocyte examined in this study include hematocrit (HCT); hemoglobin (Hb); red blood cell counts (RBC); total white blood cells and thrombocytes (WBC & thrombocytes); major/minor axis; perimeter, and area of the erythrocyte. The result shows that, after twenty days of feeding fish cinnamon powder, it stimulated the erythropoietic and leukopoietic in the fish at all rates examined. Addition of a 1.5% concentration of cinnamon powder containing contributes to stimulating the immune system of fish and improving the hematological parameters against S. agalactiae with a density of 106 CFU/mL after both 5 and 10 days of S. agalactiae challenge while the addition of 1.0% has effect after 5 days.
