    Hello. I am kind of new to plants and in my tank i have gravel and i was wondering if it was possible to use some kind of fertilizer to grow a few plants. Or will i have to change my whole substrate.

    No, if course not. Plants will grow just fine in gravel.

    Flourish or osmocote tabs.

    Root tabs/ osmocote + flourish + co2 should work :)

    Look into java moss, Imo this is the best beginners' plant.

    May I ask what your light's watts:gallons ratio is?
