A twenty gal is plenty big for a single male. My experience with temper of garters is that every single snake is an individual with it's own personality regardless of species or subspecies, some are wriggly some are unbelievably calm, some like to strike when startled and some wouldn't strike if you slapped them. Pugets have a reputation for being calm, but I would let that be the deciding factor from getting an albino checkered or any other garter for that matter. If you do go with the puget or whichever type you decide I would highly recommend that you buy a CBB baby as opposed to a wild caught adult, for many different reasons, but you can build a rapport as well as an understanding of the snakes personality as it grows and developes.
