I was going to call her Pocahontas but he wouldn't let me, so I went for the second best! She's a lil cutie though, she's really good when we handle her, although she has a fascination with going up your arm & she's super fast

Typically British! Oh the iROny!

The python is interested but not in the same way!
I guess they are dinner?
I had a Florida Gartner when I was a wee lad. Fed it feeder goldies.. it was certainly no stranger to sniping fish so.... yah.... watch that snakey with the fishies hahaha

Cheers!

Umm I wrote a whole speech about this.
This is my (our) vivarium set up. It is two 4x2 foot vivs.
Outside with the fish. I lost a bit of worktop space, which is equal to one fish tank......
But I gained these!
Snakes are very cool pets, I have loads of pictures to upload......one day!
So it's been a year with snakes, both have escaped once!
Live and learn.
Monty escaped before these were properly set up, he was living in a fish tank with an egg crate lid. He broke free, I found him cold on the floor. After carefully and slowly! Re heating, sounds like a microwave job! (But it was carefully done first acclimatising to ambient air temp, not ambient winter concrete temp as he was found!) he was then placed back into his viv (tank). He made a full recovery!
Nakoma also escaped and went on the run for several days......
She was happy living on summer concrete.
I finally caught her. At first I thought she'd gone out of the door but after leaving mice on the floor (frozen prepped) which disappeared, confirming her presence, she was later caught late at night hunting for food I guess? I think she found a gap and was living in the wall insulation!
I'm glad the building was built without any shed like gaps!
She made a full recovery........
Be careful with snakes! Lessons learned!

Both are growing well, eating more and shedding good clean consistent sheds.

Happy christmas from my family to yours.
Edit, forgot to say, I hope your fish are thriving!
If they aren't, I hope you've found the help you need!

Merry Christmas old friend. Nice to see you back here.

I've never owned a snake but if you want something super venomous let me know. We have plenty in Australia. One or two wouldn't be missed.
