Are you actually supposed too be able to remove the large amount of poop build-up from a betta and snails? Tried a couple substrate vacuums and they didn't suck up hardly anything besides water. Is there a more efficient way to clean sand?

Yup, whirl the syphon wand in a circular motion gently the poop and leftovers should kick up into it. It may take a little trial and error to get it right, but once you know how close to hold it and how hard to swirl, it's pretty easy. If you have very fine grit sand it can be a pain.

Perhaps watching this video will give you the answer on how to deep vacuum sand ?
Having the bucket lower will give more suction.

Using two hands on a gravel vacuum.
