I don't clean my sump. Sometimes just the return chamber but that I do once or twice a year.

Actually the only thing i clean is my sump, i completley drain it and syphon off all loose partickles and detritus, i scrape the class clean with a sharp blade to remove the biofilm which attaches itself to it.

Sumps for me must be maintained (filtration method dependant) i would rather advocate a seperate area such as a refugium for spawning of pods etc which i would not touch as frequesntly or administer basic maintenance to.
