Huh, it's like an acrylic fluval spec, just 1.5g smaller. Just gravel?

Don't ask for advice. Ask for information, gather lots of information from different reliable sources. Then use the information to make your own advice.

I would say that those neon tetras need more room. It is generally not recommended to put them in such a small tank because they like swimming room.

Gravel will work, just give it time and you'll end up with nutrients in it lol.
