Had a 90 and 75 all with dirt and won't likely use much else in the future - of course its capped with whatever i have lying around. I found that the first few months are relatively messy if you like to shuffle things about, however, after that the soil has, in my opinion, not been a whole lot messier at all than anything else you'd throw in. It really seems to settle down. Most gravels will have some fine particular matter too that swirls about. Its a matter of easing the roots out as opposed to yanking, although good filtration does help when you move really big plants.
