First off, I'd have to disagree with the 10 gallon thing. I'd get him something bigger. Put in a warm and a cool hide. If you don't want to use a UTH, an overhead ceramic heater should do nicely. I try to keep my temps at about 90 on the warm and 78 or so on the cool side. It's a lot easier to provide temp gradients in a larger tank.
How old is the snake? Sounds like he's doing pretty well, if he's eating for you and whatnot.
Congratulations, and good luck with him. It's nice to see people who care about their critters!
