I've never used that product, so can't comment.

As for your seconds post, are you talking about an air pump and airstones/wands? If you use a HOB (hang on back) filter, they generally provide enough surface agitation that you don't really need an air pump & stone. If you use canister filters and don't have a spray bar, it's a good idea to have an air pump/stone to agitate the surface of the water. Surface agitation helps oxygenate the water and also helps break up that oily film that can develop on the surface of the water.

don't bother they don't work very well (and the oscar is going to eat it)

Don't dwell on what went wrong. Instead focus on what to do next

just save up and get the freshwater master test kit. It will let you know what the total ammonia level is.

How are you going to know your ammonia is elevated without the test kit??

Reading you other threads you priorty list needs to be

1. Tank stand
2. Master test kit
3. More filtration
4. Python

The safety and well being of your fish should ALWAYS come before your convenience
