Talked to the guy I ordered my plants from ... the ones that don't get planted come attached to rocks. I went and bought fishing line to attach the moss to my driftwood. The lindernia I need to plant the bottom inch. He recommends gravel substrate over rocks ... isn't gravel just small rocks? I attached a picture of my tank - do I need to change my substrate? (please say no!)

It is actually a little large but it might work. I notice some dense rocks underneath so you might be alright. Next time you set one up go with sand or a very dense gravel.
