Gravel color

I am planning on semi-redecorating, and was wondering what color gravel I should go with.
I have pics on my profile of the tank and the fish.
Also, plants: silk, plastic, glow in the dark, what kind and colors?

I think that because your bettas are dark in color, white gravel would be nice. I have a light colored betta so dark gravel and plants look good with him. I would also go with light plants, maybe a cool flower.

For your fish I might consider doing black and white gravel mixed. The white in the gravel would make your black male stand out, and the black would make your blue one stand out. Silk plants are, in my opinion, the bomb diggity (LOL, sorry, I've been dying to say that all day). If you know the right stores, there're tons of different ones to pick out of, and you can choose a theme with colors. I've found that black and white gravel with green plants looks AMAZING. Hold on and I'll grab a pic of my Bliss' tank showing this :3

K, I could always get one bag of black and one of white and do black on one side and white on the other. I love how Bliss is looking right at the camera!

Since my two boys are lighter in color I did the black gravel however for a varied texture look I added clear, mirrored black, teal, light green, light blue and dark blue glass pebbles. It looks awesome and my guys like it. :)

My mom has hot pink gravel with glow in the dark plants for her bettas. Personally I don't like it but it fits her personality, and your tank should reflect you and your fishies. After all, your the one cleaning and looking at/ after it!
