    New to cp and forum

    Looks like a nice forum here. I'm new to cp, don't own any but have been interested for awhile since visiting a cp shop. Are there any good resources for newbies to read up on getting started? Pitcher plants have always seemed the most interesting to me, I have no clue about their care though which is why I don't own any


    My current hobby/addiction/lifestyle is saltwater reef keeping so husbandry isn't something new to me. I also like to brew beer. I hope to learn a lot here!

    Other than the years of posts you can find with the search function, try out all the stickied threads at the top of each forum. Otherwise, many people will recommend The Savage Garden by Peter D'Amato.

    I believe there are a couple other brewers here. Saltwater reefing, CPs, beer brewing... If you had mentioned herping you would be a perfect fit for just about anyone here!

    LOL...

    No herping for me. In our local reef club there are a few people who have dart frogs. If I had the room for more tanks I would probably be doing that too. I was hoping you guys might have a "new to cp" forum... I hope newbie questions are welcome on the general forums

    We are very welcoming of new CPers. Like I said, check out the stickies and use the search function before posting. Most likely, someone has already asked the same question (several times, lol!).
