Question Filter Media

I have had my tank for around 4ish months now being new to fish keeping I didn't really research much about filter media (stupid I know). My fish tank has an internal filter and has a carbon cartridge and a ceramic cartridge. I have recently been researching the cartridges and have found out that you need to replace the cartridges but every website tells me different information. Some say I don't need to replace the ceramic cartridge at all and others say I do
So how often do I actually need to replace the cartridges?
Thank you
Fi

Technically you should be replacing it like every 2-3 months but in reality I really only replace mine like twice a year, and all my fish have benn very happy. I would suggest doing filter cleanups tho to increase flow rate and such.
