In the tank. The thickness (2-3 inches?) coupled with the relativity small particles would same to require different measures than we're use to.
I have it at 3in and in some places 4in. Of course when you first get it you have to rinse it thoroughly. I do this in a bucket and once the water goes clear I know I've gotten most of not all the particulate matter out. Then it's ready to go.

Oh and to answer your question, I just siphon it normally if I have to. You learn to be gentle with the suction. To be honest I don't really have to because the whole tank is planted. 0ppm nitrates pretty much all the time. I'm sure you know the benefits of plants already. There's also other ways to keep the sand sifted and turned like having Corydoras, oh and also Malaysian trumpet snails.
