It's potentially okay but would require a lot more work and more frequent cleanings due to trapping more debris and uneaten food, that being said, if it's small enough it's also a potential impaction hazard if you don't feed in a bowl or dish or by hand.
Throughly rinsed sand or no substrate at all is generally superior to gravel.
