I use a python on my tank with sand. You just hover the nozzle above the sand and it will pull up the dirt without taking the sand.

after a few water changes you'll find that its easy enough to just hover over the sand. the built up detritus (organic waste) is very light and will get sucked up fine this way, if you just want to suck water out, i rest the end of mine on a piece of driftwood so it wont fall onto the sand.
