Regular pruning of some plants makes them grow bushier, rather than end up as tall, thin, and stringy specimens. The amount of light you have can also affect their growth.

"Yeah kind of wish I put some sand down now, but I can imagine it being a very messy job doing it now."

I don’t think that you would need to strip the tank in order to have sand under your gravel. Given that the sand is a smaller particulate than the gravel, it should be possible to empty a container of washed sand on to the gravel and it will work is way down with a little gentle agitation. You could build up the layer of sand over time.

You may care to experiment with an old glass jar.
