I'm looking to change my gravel. I am really not happy with the gravel I have. I think it is too big - the clowns like to dig around in gravel, correct? Have to take excellent care of the clowns!! Smaller gravel is better for plants as well, right? I don't really know the size - but it was bought because of the color...I believe you can see it with the pic I have on my profile. What is the ideal kind? What precautions shoudl I take for this change? How stressful is it for my fish to do this? Any othe rpointers would be great - always welcomed!! Will it harm the plants for the change - if so, should I loeave the gravel around the plants and put a small amount on top of it?

Thanks all - you all are most helpful!!!! My f
