i only use sand substrate for my tank.. sometimes there are some sands on the rocks. is that going to be ok? should i clean up (salt water) them?
i heard that if you have sand on the rocks.. it's going to affect the algea or reefs that on the rocks.

Sand on the rocks can give algae a place to start. Most use a turkey baster to blast this loose sand away from the rocks from time to time. That way, you can leave everything in place.
