You could always do the natural-looking gravel, too . Just another idea. That's what I use...except with my frogs because they might eat it.

The only issue is how would you clean the stones? I just thought of that now. I use them in a smaller tank that gets 100% water changes but in a larger, cycled tank I don't know how one would go about cleaning them. After all, a gravel vac wouldn't pick them up =/. You know what I mean?

Yeah, I just don't know if the vac would pick them up. But hey, give it a shot and tell us how it goes .
