Adding more gravel

I added the gravel and fish about a month ago, and now I really want live plants after looking at all these great planted tanks online, but I don't think I have enough gravel for the plants. My balloon mollies just had babies so i have 7 fish now; how should i go about adding more gravel without crushing the fish somehow?

If you get a length of plastic tubing (about the width of a gravel vac would do), you can use it as a funnel and pour the gravel in that way. That way you can do it without stressing the fish out.
