"Some other breeders have had negative comments about feeding fish"

I can understand an initial negative reaction. Heck, my gut reaction was utter shock then worry about parasites. However, once you explain it, I see only positives.

1) the snakes take them voluntarily, so it must be natural.
2) the fish (from your reputable breeder friend) are parasite free.
3) no digestive problems noted.
4) snakes grow and thrive.
5) fish are cheap and readily available.

The only downside I can see is that others trying this may not exercise your caution in making sure the fish are healthy. However, the same can be said of any prey item.
