My snake never threw up a rosy red and I have to admit that when I couldn't get rosies or minnows I occasionally fed goldfish or guppies- what ever I could get easily and cheaply from the pet store. I seem to recall she'd eat between 5 and 7 fish at a sitting 2-3 times a week. I never tried earthworms though. The Indonesian garter ate any fish I put in the bowl. Just loved to watch her fishing around though usually I fed her by hand to keep from losing fish in the substrate. I kept temps around 75 with a hot spot of about 85 for basking and the snake remained quite active. I haven't found any care info on line about them other than a study on the breeding of various asian natricine snakes. I had a similar problem just trying to identify the striped keelback. Hope yours does well!
