As for a sandbed, I used a gravel vacuum to suck through the full depth of the bed to remove trapped and decaying material but only did 1/4 of the bed at a time so as not to totally disturb the good bacteria. I'd repeat for the other quarters about every 5-7 days. Once cleaned up, it only takes a bit of time to do a maintenance vac on it every 4-5 weeks.
