welcome to the forum.

you can use sand (play sand is cheap and works great granted to pre-rinse it very well) or something like eco complete, you can even use gravel but you will want to suppliment nutrients with root tabs.

the undergravel filter isnt good for planted tanks, or tanks with sand. the canister filter will do just fine.
have you read about http://www.fishforum.com/member-subm...-methods-3067/

what are you fish, plant, lighting plans?
