CP Medium

Hi, I'm very new to CP's and have a couple of questions. I've had a 5 gal.
terrarium with Pings, VFT's, and Saracenia since June. I'm about to expand
to a 30 gal. terrarium. I plan on growing them in 2-3" of peat moss topped
with long fiber sphagnum. Is this a good medium choice? (The 5 gal. has
sphagnum over perlite.) Also, are there any cases where CP's need
fertilizer? The only things I've added to the 5 gal. is distilled (or rain)
water and the occasional ant and the plants seem quite happy.

Thanks, Tony
