you really don't want to stir up your sand bed because you could cause a spike in ammonia, nitrates, phosphates, etc. if you are wanting to get rid of the empty shells and things like that you could just suck them off the top with a small plastic hose, as far as the lower part of the sand bad you should look into something that sifts sand like nassarius snails or a queen conch.
