Substrate for SA dwarf cichlids?

I am looking for a new home for my little cichlids. They currently reside in my community tank with EC, but I want something a little more natural for them.

I have a 20L tank waiting for them but I want to add some kind of sand substrate so they can sift through. Would pool filter sand be too large for them? Should I use sand as a cap for soil or just use root tabs? WOuld you get black sand or natural? Any advice would be helpful.

BTW I have a pair of breeding GBR, 4 Checkerboards and want to get a pair of apistos for this tank.
