filter question...

I have an AquaClear 500 running on my 55 gallon tank. I am pleased with my filter thus far, have been running it for over a year now with no problems. My question is this.. For those of you who use this type filter, how often do you replace the sponge part of the filter? I take mine out each week & rinse it very well, but only actually change it every couple months.. Is this bad? Like I said, everything is fine with the tank, my nitrates are a little high, but nothing to be concerned about yet.. I think a lot of this comes from overfeeding, though I like to think that I don't do that.. hehe :) Thanks all for any suggestions!

Regina
