Question about substrate in my fluval spec v

I just got my new fluval spec v and I wanted to know if I need to use a plant substrate. I plan on doing drift wood with some moss on it and a java fern tied to it and some riccia tied to stones ,since I am not planting in the substrate can I just use gravel

my opinion is use subtrate any way because it looks much nicer than gravel.. unless you've got a fancy stone gravel in mind.
