Indonesian Gartersnake question...

I have a few gartersnakes and picked a new one up at Petco today. This snake was labeled as a garter and I've been trying to ID it all afternoon. Someone from the gartersnake listed told me it was a Indonesian watersnake. Following that lead I ended up here. Does anyone have a pic or a website that has some pics of these snakes? I haven't found much info on them but the few bits and peices I've found lead me to believe that she is a Indonsian garter snake (Xenochrophis vittata). If indeed she is then I also need proper care info. I don't have a pic but this is a descripton of her.
Her belly is black and white striped. Looks like a zebra. Down her back is a thin black strip, on either side of this strip is a goldish brown strip, below the goldish brown strip is a black strip and then it goes into her belly colors. Her neck is also very thin compared to her head size. I fed her rosies soon after I got her home and she ate them immediately. So we know she is a fish eater. :)

Thanks for any help!!

Cindy
