If you are having a hard time getting your parents to buy off on replacing the substrate, you can try adding fertilizer tabs to the gravel you already have. You can also get a bottle of flourish excel instead of pressurized co2. It serves basically the same purpose.

Both suggestions are ways you can give planted tanks a try without spending an arm and a leg to do it. That way you can see if it is something you really really like doing. And, you can probably get your parents to buy off on more equipment and stuff after they see your nice planted tank. That is how I got started, except I was trying to get my wife to buy off on it instead of my parents.
