I wouldn't- eggs that drop will settle into the gravel and that will make it hard for the male to collect them and put them in the bubblenest. But I'm sure many people have bred bettas with gravel substrate before.

You can try.. but I'm concerned with the fact you only have one tank. Where are you going to put the male and the female after the spawning and is this tank big enough to house 100+ fry?

I've spawned with gravel before, but so many of the eggs were lost in it. I wouldnt recommend it, but its possible. Also if the gravel is too big the fry get caught under the gravel. My friend made that mistake O.o
