yes but they will prefer some cover, maybe just add some floaters?

You should always have a substrate to stop the fish seeing their reflection on the bottom and to stop light reflecting off the bottom and bouncing up at the fish. You don't need much (1/2 inch is heaps) but you need something on the bottom.
