Question Favorite Color of Gravel?

I may set up my 29 gallon again, but I used the "natural" looking gravel in my 20 Long. So I was wondering what everyone's favorite color of gravel is? I have a 10 gal with black which I really like, and a 5 with white which I'm not as huge of fan of... then other tanks with natural... I don't know what to choose! Any help?

I made my 10 gallon with natural, and tbh, I LOVE it. It gives it a much more "fishy" look, imo. Natural tanks are my favorite (:

I mixed colors for Freed's tank. The natural color they had available wasn't dark enough for me, so I ended up mixing black with dark purple and dark blue. It looks really nice. c:

Natural is the way to go, though, in my opinion.

i love the natural multi-color (shades of brown and tan, etc.). it especially looks good in my tank because of the peach colored lighting in the tank at night.

I really love the Top Fin beach mix.

I'm a huge fan of all natural tanks (and as I've learned, fish love them too). I have the 'Swift Creek' gravel from Petco. It's mush larger than normal gravel, but I love the variety in the size and color.

All of my pets (fish, hermit crabs, etc) have natural looks in their tanks.. I try to stay away from bright color, flashy decorations, etc.

This is what I use, it's smaller than the picture makes it look. Nice color variety.

thanks for all the quick responses! i think i'd go with the beach gravel :) Oh and where can I buy live plants? my petsmart only has the plants in the "tubes" now, just looking for fast growing like elodea... I only have petsmart, walmart, and 1 LFS that i rarely go to.
