Unless your gravel is deteriorating for some reason, you should never have to replace it. Are you experiencing some sort of issue with it?

Siphoning regularly, or if it's a 1-3g tank, rinsing during a regular 100% water change will keep it clean. No need to ever replace gravel unless you are planning on redecorating your tank. =)

I've had the same gravel in my 40gal community tank for years. I only replaced it because I wanted to change the look.
