Gravel

Does anybody have a link to a small, smooth gravel that I could cap my dirt in my aquarium with?

Thanks

Are there any stores near you that sell masonry or landscape supplies? They will have lots of different rock, different sizes and colors. They may also carry graded sand, including a pretty coarse sand (which is a couple of mm diameter)

Ask about the Lapis Lustre product line, though I am sure there are others.

Thats what i was thinking? Maybe home depot or lowes for a small landscaping gravel. Do you guys have any experience with stuff like this? Its cheap, but are there any precautions? (Other than having to rinse the heck out of it)
