How often should

I clean my protein skimmer it at all? And if so, should I CLEAN it? Like take it apart and clean everything? Or does maybe just the pump need a once over?

I empty the cup and clean it with a toothbrush when it's full (or during my weekly water changes). Some people recommend taking apart and cleaning pumps once every six months.
