I'm planning on a 19 litre (5g) tank, which will be low-tech and natural light (at least for the foreseeable). I've not chosen plants yet, but the plan as far as stocking goes will be a few guppies, some red cherry shrimp, and probably a few snails but nothing fancy there. The guppies are a definite, the shrimp less so, but I'd like shrimp.

What substrate should I use? Can I go with gravel-capped dirt for shrimp, or, because I'm in a hard water area, would I be better off with a plant-specific substrate, or a shrimp one, or both?
