Not cleaning them, just doing what you would do with the filter media, rinse a small portion of it at a time in some salt water (only doing this after 6 months after cycling and then monthly after that). At least those are the directions I've read. My LFS
uses a wet/dry filter on their maroon clown breeding tank and have had the best luck for over 10 years! Also it can be lower maintenance than having a fuge with algae (some people are trimming back the algae daily).
This is just the way that I chose...and I've done plenty of research. Thank you for your input!
