What are reasons/advantages of bare bottom tanks? Since they are bare bottomed, is there anything to see?

none really, just less ammonia is created because gravel can hold food/poop in the gravel for longer and rot/decay, while bare bottom tanks you can actually see the waste and remove faster. I just wanted to try something different, and i will be geting an HM, so i want to see if this will make a difference, if not, i can always add small rocks later.

Just easier to clean really. I use both bare bottom and fine gravel set ups.

This was my bare-bottom killifish tank. I had lots of moss and subwassertang stuck onto wood and then just added ferns and bolbitis.



This is what my uncycled, bare bottom betta tanks looked like when I had them running. I only had some java moss and PVC pipe in there to make it easier to clean. However, the fish seemed happy and never had any issues with the tanks.
