I have natural/various shades of tan gravel but I'm thinking of mixing in some black gravel in with it.
Not sure if that'd look too... "messy" though.

Try your LFS, mine has a wonderful selection. Also try Craigslist in your area. If you can purchase online try aquabid or ebay.

My 2 set ups have java fern, java moss, duckweed, anacharis, and my pride and joy plant wise is a piece of bogwood that I attached crystalwort (riccia) and anubias nana to.

This is the ONLY place I will buy plants:

http://plantedaquariumscentral.com/

Heather is a great gal that is very helpful & willing to answer any and all of your questions. I think the prices are reasonable & shipping is fast.

BTW, LOVE the natural gravel, but ALSO love black - it really seems to make the fish's colors pop!

I would LOVE to try sand, but don't have the time for upkeep!

Currently I love the light / dark blue mix. I think it's cute with the plants creaking a nice feeling without being obnoxiously fake looking.
