Personally I wouldn't even bother with an air stone but instead attach a small sponge filter that way if you need to set up a quarantine or another tank after running the sponge filter in the tank for a month or so then swapping it to a new tank it'll give you an instant cycle. Just be sure to always check your water parameters when starting any new tank with established media just to be safe.

Yes, I would think so, if you're only worried about salt. Aquarium salt is often used to treat sick fish so potential remnants on an airstone won't kill fish.
Yeah I was worried about the salt. But thanks! Now I have some peace of mind aha.

Ah, I would but I’m currently with a makeshift setup with a betta far away from home/tanks.
