If i had to choose only one I would choose the caribsea sand that isn't really fine, it's not as big as gravel but not super fine like sand, It's a good texture to be gentle on plants but not so fine that it shows every single fish poop or leaf either. Drives me crazy how the fine sand shows every thing and makes me want to vacuum the gravel daily.
I can get that at petco in the 5 pound bag the small bag that have to spend a fortune on lol or is it only big bags not a frequent petco shopper
