I'd agree with lizlady... spotteds (Antaresia maculosa) can get a little bigger, like 4-5 feet, but children's (Antaresia childreni) stay a little smaller (3 feet or so). Both are reputed to have an excellent feeding responce and good temperment.

Perhaps a ribbon snake (Thamnphis ssp.) would be another good choice. They are mostly live fish-eaters but I've heard of them feeding on frozen mouse pinkies. They are a little more nervous and not very good to handle but they're lots of fun to watch. They get to be about three feet.

Good luck with snakes, just curious, what do you keep in your aquariams?
