Its just the hassle in getting the fish out, especially with silver dollars going crazy and hurting themselves etc. :?

Just pour the gravel in slowly from cups. Should be fine just make sure one hand is in the tank moving the fish out of the way underneath the cup. Put the cup upright into the water with the gravel when you do it, then pour the cup down so the gravel comes out just make sure you do it from say half tank or under so that you do not squash any fish and you should be fine. Long process but hey will not harm the fish. Make sure you thoroughly wash the gravel out before you do it, and also use stability after wards just as a precautionary as substrate does hold good bacteria.
