It depends on the size, amount of specimens kept etc. Because of firebellies live mostly in the water, where they leave their dropping, you should at least clean it every week. Use of a waterfilter is advised to avoid a rotting smell. Frogs eat live prey, so their droppings will start to rot as soon as soon as they are excreted. Dirty water is not only bad for the frog (causes eye and skin infections), but is also dangeropus for the owner!
