I would just put the filter on it. You need water movement. No reason not to. As you need to cycle the rank with the filters running or some type of movement throughout the tank. I would run the filters all the time.

You can run the filter to catch the particles of junk the sand gives off and just clean them to clear the water up. I just ran the filter even when my tank was murky.
