i believe you do need a sandbed for certain specimens. if you dont plan on keeping those specimens, then no sandebed is required.
sandbeds are great places for microfauna to thrive. removing that aspect of the environment will without doubt decrease the biodiversity in your system. i would stick wiht a sandbed of some kind.
maybe do a remote sandbed in a refugium or sump.
