I bought gravel from Petco for my planted aquarium yesterday and I think I bought epoxy gravel. Should I just use it or should I buy natural gravel?

If you like it, I'd just keep it. I had plants grow very well in small pea size gravel, I don't think plants care. Use a liquid fert and/or fert tabs in the gravel, and plants should do well.

epoxy coated is ok, epoxy is totally inert.

i dont see a problem with it
welcome to the forum btw!

ps... on your threads title, it might help to be more specific than "need help!' try something like... epoxy gravel help! or at least gravel health!

look forward to seeing your tank :D
