It's more of containing much calcium. They don't cause harm though but removing the accumulated stuff is a pain.
Shrimps will benefit from that as their shells harden thus they won't easily be eaten by the fish.

I beg to differ. Any deposts that collect on the glass can be easily removed with a flat bladed hobby knife.
