Fair enough.

The cloud itself won't hurt the fish, but the side-effects of the cloud could.

Just go slow when you're adding the new substrate it to minimize any stir-up, and be prepared to do PWCs and you'll be fine.

You could do a good vacuuming of the gravel then use a cup to slowly pour the eco complete in. That any clouding.
