I'm setting up a 15 gallon (seeding it with filter from existing tank and doing the hanging of some gravel in a bag on the side for a while) with the following:
2 honey gourami
5 lyre tail guppies
I've ordered a LED hood for this aquarium. I wanted to get a substrate that shows off the colors well. I also wanted to get a smaller size gravel, 1/8 or 1/4 in.. I think this size is pea gravel. Any opinions?
Also where do you buy this size? Can you get it in black?
I would go with 1/8" for no reason other than personal preference. You should be able to find something at your local fish/pet store. Black substrate is becoming more and more popular, so I think more retailers are stocking it. If no one near you carries it, look to amazon or ebay.
