It looks like your tank will look great pretty soon
I used regular black gravel. Used alot 3 large bags. But I also used more soil than recommended. I plan on just being very cautious and probing around to release any possible gas build ups as recomened online.

Here's a pic nothing special. But very thankful for the water progress lol
