 Everglades rat snake

shaddy i also got a everglades rat snake recently, and im worried about stress as well, im super worried because the first little guy i got died, i felt horrible and i really didint think i did anything wrong. i got a new one a week later and i literally havent stopped stressing about this guys stress! i call him psycho #2, psycho because this species is nuts and #2 in honor of his little bro. things i changed up for this new guy, i worried about humidity so i got cocoa husk i put down a good layer of that, then a layer of aspen shavings, #1 was only on aspen. i had #1 in a 10 gallon fish tank, #2 started in this as well but is now in a 20 with way more hides and branches to hide in. also i havent even tried to handle this guy except when i switched his tank, im just gonna leave him till hes a bit bigger then try.
what are you feeding yours and how do you go about it, i mean mine has ate live and f/t mice and rats. also how do you know for sure they are in shed? ball pythons eyes get blue do these guys as well?
i have many questions, im sure you do too just keep posting i think we can help each other alot
