You're gonna want a bare bottom tank...trust me it's way easier to clean.

^^^Agreed, plus i takes FOREVER to clean play sand and it raises the pH, which you don't want with bettas. Just go with the bare bottom, much easier and it's free! :)

Gravel is expensive too....and more for decorative tanks. Plus I prefer the look of bare bottomed tanks.

It's a personal preference. You can but it'll be harder to clean...just remember that.
