I’ve wanted some kind of water snake as many are amazing looking but I here they are hard to keep alive. How easy has this guy been to care for? Whats it eating?

I mean they not easy but not difficult. I have a 1 yo one ,they are way smaller than US ones, they are very flighty, hissy and musk a lot and by this small size they nearly impossible to handle, they very active. At first her was accepting only live fish ( guppies or other safe feeder fish) but I succesfully switched to frozen silverside.They a bit rare here in EU and way more rare in US. This subspecies comes from spain and this ones from south spain so she dont really need a big water bowl they do well with a normal sized one but im upgrading her in a paludarium by the end on jan
