I don't have a wet/dry but I would think when it gets dirty. Not just a little brown but before it starts to scum over. You might be able, depending on what kind of fiber it is, rinse it out a couple of times before trashing it. The time frame will really depend on your bioload and how your tank is set up.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

I clean mine weekly. They are nitrate factory so I make sure I clean mine weekly. If you do more, it won't hurt.
