New to forum and snakes (became owner of friends milksnake)

Hi Everyone,
I'm new to snakes and think what I have is a scarlet kingsnake. A friend went away for treatment and needed someone to care for it for about a month, however ended up moving out of state right after so now its mine. Never had a snake before. When I got him, he was in a 20 gallon tank with a few rocks and newspaper, heat pad under left side and ceramic dual light. I tore the inside garbage out, put down zoo med aspen bedding, some fake plants, hollowed logs/rocks and water bowl. He was fed a pinky 3x a month when I got him but thay didn't seem enough, he was looking to escape more quickly after eating so I figured that meant he was getting hungry quicker and needed more. So now it's a fuzzy once a week. Looking for advice on what type of snake I have, how big its going to be and anything I may have wrong. Thanks in advance. Attached pictures od the original tank setup and the others are of the snake in the current enclosure. The one of it climbing the wall had to turn sideways to get to upload.
