Question Gravel?

What kind do you like?
CaribSea Floramax Planted Aquarium Substrate Midnight?
Carib Sea Instant Aquarium Substrate - Torpedo Beach?
SeaChem Flourite Black?
Eco Complete Planted Aquarium Substrate?
or the more ball shaped gravel?

other suggestions?

i like darker gravel, it will be a planted shrimp tank!
probably 25 aqueon deluxe kit or the 29 aqueon deluxe kit!

love this look of gravel but would cost a fortune $20 for 8.8lbs.

I went with ecocomplete because I heard great things about it and it's really easy stuff to work with. It hasn't been long since I finally got the right nutrition balance, but so far it's doing its job if good plant growth is the job. I also had fluorite in a no-tech tank for several years that worked well. I'm sure they all work equally well.
