Best Substrate

Looking for a good gravel substrate. I was looking at Seachem Flourite Black, Volcanit, or Eco complete. I need to make sure it is a gravel, and stays a gravel. The reason for this is being that I have a power gravel vacuum, at it cannot handle sand, only gravel.

I prefer black, but that volcanit looks nice.

Eco-Complete has my vote. I really like it.

I was checking the Eco out at the LFS tonight and it has the small substrate in it as well, and was just worried about the vacuum. I don't use it that often, but it can be very handy at times.

Eco is all gravel though, right? And will it stay a gravel, or does it break down into more of a dirt/sand?
