Advice: Whenever you buy your first fish, ask the store for a handful of of the gravel that you can put in your tank. The store gravel is cultured with all of the necessary bacterias that will help keep your fish alive. It can take weeks for the bacteria to grow naturally without cultured gravel, but with a handful from the store, it will only be a matter of days before it spreads to the entire tank.
