You can either get the sand mentioned or play sand / pool sand from your home store. Shop around the home store thou, ours has play sand that's more white/ grayish and some other that's more brownish, more natural looking IMO, that's the one I always use.
I'm assuming you're changing the substrate in the existing tank with the shrimp right? Easiest to do w/out burring them clean out a 20oz coke bottle cut the bottle below its neck (where it starts being strait down) and turn the cut part inside the bottle and put a bottom feeder pill or whatever your shrimp pref eat in it. Shrimp will go into the bottle to eat but somehow (with the inside out neck in it) can't come back out - Its a easy & non stressful way of catching them all
This takes a while so I'd suggest doing this the night prior to when you wanna change out your gravel
