I'm not very farmilar will filter cartridges used in a top-fin filter, but I would think you would not want to replace it until it was falling apart

Almost all of the bactria that you need to keep you tank healthy lives in your filter media. I would clean your cartridge in old tank water before changeing

I have some media in my filters that is well over one year old and will likely last for a few more years
