I used to keep garters/fish eating snakes and had an Indonesian "garter" and also a striped keelback. Both were just lovely and had the mildest temperments (thankfully since I didn't know at the time they were somewhat venomous). Rosy reds were the fish I fed too, along with smaller minnows from the bait shop. From what I can tell, they are wild caught so parasites can be a problem. Both my snakes died around a year after I got them and at the time I couldn't afford a vet necropsy to identify the cause. I did actually see a cyst like structure on the keelback that had a thin worm in it so I think that's what did them in. I wouldn't house them with any other snakes until you get a work up from the vet to remove all doubt about the parasite issue. Good Luck! ;) Those belly scales are awsome!
