I believe that it's a type of seaweed/algae.. I've heard of Asian factories mass producing this stuff and selling it (it's a powder that you mix with water as a drink). Apparently it's really healthy for you...buuttt I don't wanna try something that looks like sewer water... >:P

Huuummmm... I'm going to guess after a couple of weeks... maybe 1 week?
It might make the water INCREDIBLY GREEN...don't take that for word though...I've never tried the stuff but I know it's crazy green as a drink...makes your teeth green @__@ blech... You can always just feed it to them after a week and see if they take it. :P

Spirulina is dried blue green algae (cyanobacteria). Spirulina Powder is usually used to feed the fry of algae eating species. It is also used to sustain brine shrimp cultures to be grown out to adulthood as well as for daphnia feed for those who use them as a livefood alternative and keep their own culture. I feed my daphnia green water and spirulina as a supplement once a week. Although I have heard that it can be used as a diet supplement for betta fry, it probably would not be their food of choice and you may have a hard time with getting them to see it as a food source, especially since you will be feeding them primarily other live foods. It should never be used as a sole or primary food source for feeding betta fry. Hope this helps. =)
