For any external filtration really including wet/dry systems. Keeping external filtration free of excess waste by cleaning weekly/monthly depending on how dirty they get, bio-load, feeding schedule, & whether or not a skimmer is used is always necessary to keep your no3 low or undetectable.

A proper pwc schedule of 10% weekly or a minimum of 20% monthly is highly recommended also. Especially if keeping no3 sensitive inverts.
