i think that is a little to big, i would go with a 40 or even a 55 gallon tank first. but like i said that is my opinion. i do think though like said that it is a little to big for a young carpet.

If you provide a snake with enough hides, too big isn’t a problem. You are going to have to have a lot of hides and a lot of cover for that big of a tank. Branches and fake plants can give you a lot of cover, and you can make hides out of almost anything (pots, plastic containers, store-bought hides). If you give him/her plenty of places to hide and feel secure, the cage will be alright.
