Welcome, Toshi! Let me say, your English is exceptonal!

Leucs are a great species to start with, IMHO. As you have noted, feeding darts is the most tricky part--keeping enough cultures going to consistently have enough food. Most of us culture fruit flies, and you can find some good recipes and techniques around here or just ask.

When leucs are small, I would recommend feeding every day, as their metabolism is fast. However, in my experience, leucs tend to get rather heavy with daily feeding once they mature. I often go 2 days between feeding or feed very lightly, as they will pack on the weight rapidly once mature. However, I would not recommend going any longer than that without feeding.

Your tank sounds great, but I would keep the juveniles in a simple 10 gallon setup for at least a few months so you can closely monitor them and ensure that they are eating well. Other than that, it sounds like you have researched well.

All the best!

Thanx for these answers (and comments about my English :wink: )
I take notice about not feeding the yougsters too much.
I may not have been clear with what I said (sorry): feed the youngsters everyday. When they are actively growing, lots of food is better than too little. When full grown, the leucs tend to put on weight and can go a day or two between feeding.

Good luck.
