I agree that breeding the visual gene carrier to any other isos in the colony, then pairing the visual to the heterozygous offspring would be a good way to proceed. This would also answer questions 1-3.

As to Q #4, since you'd be making non-visual carriers, it makes sense to try to sex the visual leucistic, then cross it with as many of the opposite sex you can find. Random mixing of sexes would make it impossible for you to find the het offspring, since many of them won't be carriers.
Aw shucks hoping I was the first but now I know they're out there and what someone charges for them, thanks! Yeah I figured I should isolate it, it's probably breeding age now and I should try to get as many babies as possible while it's around.
