ok so bare bottom tank or should i keep my gravel in the tank ? i noticed the fry flip over the gravel to get the algae on the bottom of the pebbles. but bare bottom would be easier to clean. so what do you guys think ?

I personally use gravel in my tanks. More surface area for algae to grow on them so they can graze. I've never been one much for bare bottom except in hospital tanks as it doesn't seem natural. I want the tanks to be as natural for the fish as possible and pleasing to the eye also.
