What is the best substrate?

I am thinking of creating a new loaches tank. I am newbie in term of keeping loaches, I know a lot about koi. Right now I have some clown loaches & B.modesta, and still looking for some good striata and kuhli.
I am interested in surveying alll you expert loache keepers on the best substrate to use.

Is sand the best? What kind? Can home depot playpan sand (safe for children) be used?

Thank you
