I clean my HOB filters approximately once every two months. When I used penguin and tetra filters it was more often, but I clean my aquaclears much less frequently. My canisters get cleaned once every 2-3 months and my sponges get rinsed in tank water every few water changes. I reuse all my filter media until it is falling apart.

How often you do maintenance on your filter really depends on the size of the tank, the stock, and the type of filter. One of the reasons I moved away from tetra filters is that they seamed to require a lot of cleaning.
