It usually takes upwards of a week for water snakes to be adjusted to their new enclosures. Try to give him many hiding places, and dont handle him. That will significantly lower stress and cause him to adjust quicker.

That cage looks way too big for a snake that size, try putting him in something smaller.

thats y its not eating its over welmed never put a baby snake in a big cage gets stressed out start off slow other wise it gets overwelmed causing him to stop eating stop drinking stop defecating then it dies so yes put it back in the 10 start of slow work your way up eventually get yourself to a 40. un less its a large one then u can start in a 20 then go to 40

COLOUBRIDS (if thats how you spell it) like a watersnake will eat while you hold them, put 1-2 little goldfish in its water fish and put his head up to it, i have a northern banded water snake, that i found as a hatling in the wild, and ive kept it in captivity for 4 months and hes healthy and a joy to own
