Thank you Dave! I followed that link and came upon this:
http://www.azreptiles.com/forums/sho...459-Thiaminase
It makes mr curious though, if it is really a big deal and if it effects species that prey exclusively on fish? The other links were mainly for garter snakes.

Cody, you have done so well with one of my most favoritest snakes ever in the whole wide world. I don't know if they feed on goldfish in the wild, so I don't know if that is going to cause a long-term accumulative affect on the health of your individual. I imagine that all fish prey in the wild are not goldfish. I just wanted to toss that out here as something possibly worth considering.
Here's a couple of other links. Kinda new here so not sure if linking to other forums is okay.

I have read the acrochordus site as if it were the bible! Since I got her fully aquatic snakes have been my absolute favorite subject! I would (after reading that) want to look into other sources of feeders, but wouldnt know where to start. I work at a pet shop so i get feeder comet goldfish for cheap, and theyre big enough to be a substancial food source. Feeder shinners or guppies or minnows would just be a snack. And shes only getting bigger with the potential to get huge (6-8ft). I know comets are abailable up to about a foot to a foot and a half long, i dont know of any other substancialy sized feeders other than those. Any ideas?

I'd start on google with a search something like
wholesale aquarium fish dealers usa -salt -supplies
the -salt -supplies weeds out results that contain those two words.
Because I don't think you are looking for salt water fish, nor supplies
but of course you can tweak the search string
for instance if you wanted to include betta, then the search would be
wholesale aquarium fish usa +betta
or something like that
hope this helps

Editing to add:
maybe try searching for
breeder aquarium fish Connecticut -salt
as another possible search, to swap a few words

I don't know if there are fish farms (e.g., salmon or trout) in your vicinity, but if so they would have larger species of fish in every size from sprat to adult, and might be open to selling juveniles to you.

For example I found these by Googling Fish Farms in Connecticut

Hey guys, so I recently brought her some larger comets and as soon as I put them in she came out and grabbed one! I saw the strike and initial wrap, then recorded this!

Very cool footage, even if the end result was a release! Did she eat one eventually?
