Hi, I'm new to aqua planting and used to keep fancy goldfish for years in bare tanks. So I have 0 experience and just starting up.

I'm planting a 29g tank with 40w lighting (will upgrade).

I already added gravel mixed with Sera Floredepot and filled the tank with water, but after checking set ups here I don't find it that appealing as the gravel is big in size and light colored.

Now I really want to add finer black substrate for a better appearance, is it ok to just pour it on top of what I have now (filled with water)? Or am I supposed to completely start over?

Sorry if the question is stupid but I don't want to mess up and regret not asking. :(

Thanks for letting me know Storm_Rider, I guess for the mean time I'll just deal with what I have. Now I'm considering dwarf hair grass or any carpet plant once I upgrade the lighting so hopefully it won't be visible then.
