Gravel?? Why did you not get sand? Every fish loves sand. You could try a Yellowstriped Cardinalfish those look nice and would do OK in your tank. Again, only one. Thats it

No get aragonite based sand. Gravel has no place in saltwater.

Probably not. They are diggers and tend to burrow around. The gravel may hurt them or get them a disease. I am so happy you cam here first or you would have had a fish deathcamp

So how does this sound? Take the rocks out for a mixture. Remove all the gravel. Put rocks back in. Get sand tomorrow?
