I much prefer natural looking gravel over the painted stuff, used to use that but it just doesn't look very good. Currently I'm using pea stone (or pea gravel), super cheap and looks great. Note this pic is really old, some of those plants didn't take for whatever reasons.

Yes they are, I'm not real keen on the fake plants, no matter how real they look. I don't have any recent pics, it's much more open but I plan on adding more to it to thicken it up again.

I currently have white in my 135, but all my other tanks have natural gravel. It just looks right. Gonna change the gravel within a week or so. Maybe next water change.

I had natural coloured, very fine gravel in my tank, and it looked great. But after I moved, I switched to a more coarse, white/marble gravel, which in my opinion looks even better, because it really makes the bright red coloration of my natts constrast with the white gravel. To me, it seemed like their whole appearance became more colourful...

Compare for yourself (keep in mind that the colours are not exactly like in 'the real world', because they're photo's, but it's enough to get the picture):

But it's all a matter of personal preference...
