Thank you
I use sand. They dig a lot so it works. Depending on your water hardness you may have to go with coral.

I only use sand as a substrate unless I'm making a gravel stream biotope. Sand is the ONLY substrate I use in Oscar tanks as I once had an Oscar who'd pick up gravel and spit it everywhere AND pick up rocks and ram them into the glass.
