Francis, I find that’s the way with many aquarium owners — many start with the iconic colored gravels, but gradually progress to a more natural look. Personally, I prefer that, and feel like my fish do as well. Kind of like a person usually feels more comfortable in a room with hardwood floors than bright pink ones. 🙂

This is your ordinary run of the mill aquarium gravel found everywhere. It comes in a variety of colors and sizes and is fairly inexpensive. It’s easy to siphon and if you want a pink fish tank, you can have a pink fish tank. PASTEL PINK FROST AQUARIUM GRAVEL

Pure Water Pebbles Aquarium Gravel Neon Pink is a natural freshwater aquarium gravel substrate. Fish-safe 100% acrylic coating. Non-toxic and colorfast, will not alter aquarium chemistry. Ideal for aquariums, ponds, terrariums, crafts, landscaping and more.Bubbling treasure chest ornaments and neon-pink gravel adds a fun look to your aquarium, but it also moves the focus away from the fish and on to the decorations. If you prefer this approach, there’s many ways to create that environment in a healthy aquarium. Be sure to do your research on each item you choose — many of the very common aquarium substrates and decorations (like plastic plants) can be very harmful to your fish. It’s also a good idea to plan for your gravel vacuuming as you place your ornaments, as you will want to be able to access your gravel without damaging your setup.Unfortunately, Trumpet snails are also extremely prolific and nearly impossible to eliminate from an aquarium once a population is established. Additionally, they can begin to look bedraggled as they reach a point where there’s hundreds roaming your aquarium, and they’ve bred beyond their food supply. The other burrower, Physa snails, are easier to control but don’t churn up the substrate as well. Ramshorn snails are easier to control and even come in brown, gold, blue, and pink varieties, but will only clean the surface of the gravel.GloFish Bead Accent Gravel - Pink adds a beautiful look to your aquarium!

When selecting your gravel you need to take into consideration everything that is going into your tank. High water flow angled downwards can cause a problem with tiny gravel. For ground walkers and snails small gravel may be the better choice. Plecostomus will love to munch on large pieces of gravel as they suck off the algae and many shrimp enjoy holding the large pieces in their many hands as they eat. Plants can easily spread their roots in both sizes, and algae can sink further into large gravel. Some fish even like to burrow into small gravel!

Ultimately smaller gravel need less, but more difficult, maintenance and are favored by most creatures. If however you own only free swimming fish and cleaner shrimp large gravel may be more your style. If you have tank mates who require different gravel you can even get two smaller bags of each, getting the benefits of both.

Color
While this is a choice of preference we still want to make sure new owners don't buy without thinking ahead. Sure green gravel can look beautiful and provide a rich background. Add in a couple plants and there's suddenly too much green. Likewise with black gravel it may be too dim if you have dark fish with few decorations. Remember the aquariums are supposed to be unique and vibrant. Try a color you don't see every day or even mix two colors together. Solid black combined with grey stones can give you a rich charcoal effect while green and pink produce an uplifting spring time vibe.

Savvy owners can even match and contrast their gravel with their fish. Everyone knows the combo of glow fish and black gravel. Dazzle your visitors by contrasting black and red fish with a lighter color. Conversely white/silver fish with dark colors can make a beautiful pairing.

Depth
If you do not want any live plants and have few scavengers, just an inch will serve your tank well. This will save you both space and money. For those tanks full of plants and various burrowing fish a 3 inch deep bed creates a more suitable environment Fiji Pink - This soft pink colored, 100% aragonite substrate is a good intermediate sand size product. The precise 0.5 - 1.5mm grain size combines some of the animal friendly properties of fine sand such as ingestability and low resistance to burrowing, but with better diffusive flux properties and good porosity. This is also the standard choice for reef aquariums at 1 pound per gallon.
