Really? I thought sand just falls through if you put it with gravel? Do you have more sand then gravel or something? Sounds like an interesting set up, do you have a picture?
You should really be vacuuming your gravel every time you do a water change. You probably sent the nitrites and nitrates off the charts because you have sooo much crap all stuck down there.
But I vote sand, unless your not down for the extra care, and then in that case natural coloured gravel!!!
