    I currently have a Anubius Nana in there tied to a rock, but what else can I put in with a gravel bottom tank?? I'm still in fishless cycle, so I don't have any fish yet. Here is a photo of my tank so far. My tank is 10G.

    i have a gravel 10 gallon and i’ve had a lot of success with amazon sword plants, my cryptocorns are also doing good, i have 2 anubias nana plants in my tank as well, however they are in the gravel. the trick to have ur anubias survive is to only bury the roots & not the thick green stem at the bottom. moss balls also rly work for me :)

    Just FWIW your gravel will be much easier to keep clean if there is less of it. There is no real need for it to be any higher than the frame at the bottom. Uneaten food and organic waste gets trapped in the gravel and sinks - so a thinner layer is better.
