If you want to clean your sand thats fine but don't stir it up, use one of those gravel cleaners you get at the store to suck up the gunk. They do a good job without messing up your water too much...
I thought about getting some of the turbos but just haven't gotten around to getting them.
I had a turbo snail in my 20 gallon long reef and he did do a really good job cleaning the algae up until he died.
I have a manual gravel cleaner that use to try and get the gunk out. I think I need one that has a bigger tube on it though. My tanks are in my office at work so I can't really use the kind that hooks up to the sink.
