Clean them when they are dirty, but if you have 3 then maybe alternate cleaning them in case you kill off too much bacteria but that shouldn't be an issue if you clean them in tank water etc. If you have them in a bare bottom and do weekly water changes sucking up any crud then they probably dont get that dirty anyway.
