Price doesn't matter. I only need 2 bags. I just want easy to rinse and the whole 'bacteria' thing on Eco complete sounded nice

I believe the Eco sand will buffer the PH and since your Oscar is a SA that's not ideal. The bacteria thing is a gimmick.

If you don't want to rinse the sand, Pool filter sand if your best option and is neutral.

So oscars don't need a higher ph? I'd prefer a darker sand.... Should I maybe do gravel instead?
