From what I understand, I need to introduce another line as inbreeding will surely start bringing about lower quality, but I feel really lucky with this round.
In my experience, that won't be needed for some time. In fact, I'd put that off for as long as you can. When you introduce a new line, there's a solid chance that the gene that make each blue won't match up as well as keeping one line. But yeah, I kept a cherry colony for about 10 years, and by the end they threw pretty much everything. The biggest factor is pulling out any that don't meet your standards before they reach breeding age.
