I think the Eco would mostly be beneficial if you were using root tabs/capsules.
The MGOCPM doesn't come in a small size any more...discontinued. I bought one
of the last four on Amazon. Save the rest and use for potted plants.
The one that I have is marked "8 dry Quarts" and it's a bit more than you need.
Not much and if I sift a lot out of it that may make it very close to just enough.
Don't intend to take out anything but logs though.
With no critters you don't need a filter. But you should still have some circulation.
Actually a(1) Betta can live in there without a filter if you have the circulation.
Edit: I think the one marked "Torpedo Beach" is a tan sand but I would look for it in the store before I'd buy it.
The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line...in the opposite direction...
