You do not have to vacuum the sand. How much sand do you have inches wise? The sand bed acts as your denitrifier and you do not want to disturb it. Also if you got any live sand or live rock the critters will migrate between the two. They will become your sand and rock cleaners. Like snails, worms, pods and such. But a sand bed its not made to be vaccumed. If it looks dirty it may be your new alges makin it look like that.
