Yup, you can mix the gravels. Is your hood one piece with the light inside? To upgrade to fluorescent, you'll need to get a new "deluxe" hood or a glass canopy and fluorescent light strip.

Haha, yeah most people with guppies get a population boom every 4-6 weeks. :)

The lid that came with the tank has two small incandescent tubes, about 3-4 inches in length. It's a standard size 10 gal, so I could possibly get a new lid for it, as well.

Hey, it looks great! Sounds like the same incandescent hood I got on my very first tank. For fluorescent lights, you'll have to get a different hood. I believe it's the Top Fin or Aqeon Deluxe hood. Costs a fortune though. :(

For a 10 gallon I think it's only like $35. Save yourself, OP, and never get a 29 gallon without a kit. The hood and light for it is $50 alone.
