Would H/F and Khuli loaches like sand?

I am doing a major reorganisation after spending my savings on a 80gal clearseal tank and unit. I have a 30 gal currently unoccupied tank that will be housing a red finned albino shark, 9 khulis, 4 Horsefaced loaches, 3 yo - yo loaches a golden sucking loach, and 3 Skunk loaches and prehaps my barbs (all living together quite happily in smaller quarters at the moment).
My horsefaced and Khuli loaches spend a lot of time in the substrate and I thought they might prefer a mix of coral sand and sand - or would this be too fine?
I lost a large family of horsefaced loaches in one day a while back and the only explination I could come up with was (as the levcels were ok in the tank) that they had 'burrowed' through some pockets of nastyness within
