gravel is ify but if you mix it with live sand it should balance out.

Gravel can work, but you would be better off with sand. If you do use gravel you will have to keep a very close eye on your ph and supplement with a ph buffer on a very regular basis.

Sand in SW is much better than gravel or crushed coral. Your inverts and burrowing animals will have a hard time getting through.
