Taiwan Beauty Snakes for beginner?

Hi all, I'm new here
I'm just wondering if anyone would suggest a Taiwan Beauty Snake to a beginner snake keeper? I was originally planning to get a corn, as I want a nice, docile snake, but I absolutely love the look of the Beauties. I'm a little concerned by the size of their teeth (as shown in a previous post, lol) and their size. Am I correct in assuming that a 25 gal aquarium would not be large enough for a full grown Beauty? I've read that Beauties are quite docile and relaxed snakes, but aggressive at feeding time. I also need to know how easily stressed they are, as I'll be transporting them 2 1/2 hrs away from my school to home every summer.
