There are 2 ways to do it super cleen with no gravel ro water not the way I do it
The other is with a well settled tank well planted with wood rocks and water treted with a mix of indian almod leaves and bark oh and a minimum of 10 times filtration but with as little flow in the tank as you can I do it with a twin up lift under gravel and external filter I have about 14 times on my tank
