whats better rocks or sand

OK so I would like change the rocks in our tank they are blue and dont set off our bettas color well. while I was looking around at different tanks on line ( i really like the tanks with the black rocks or sand) I noticed some people had the small fish tank rocks and some had a sand type substrate. which is easier to care for? How would you clean the sand?

I have both rocks and sand - they are equally easy to clean.

The rocks you just vacuum with a gravel siphon when doing water changes - super easy.

For the sand, you also use a gravel siphon, but you stir the water to make the debris float and then vacuum it up. If you want white sand, but don't want to pay Petco's prices, pool filter sand makes a great substrate, and it's very pretty. Only downside is that it only comes in one color.

Pool filter sand is great, I really prefer it to anything else!
