substrate for 80g help plz!

starting a new 80g tank and need ideas for gravel

plant wise would just be the basic kinds. nothing needing hardcore lighting or c02.

looking for something natural looking.

any ideas or anybody have pics of theres?

something that would be ideal for vacuuming while cleaning also

stuck in the middle of the road here lol

Don't vacuum a planted substrate.
