Can I put a filter sponge from an aquaclear 50 in the corner of my already cycled tank and have that sponge collect enough bacteria to switch to another aquarium?

If so how long should I leave the sponge in the aquarium? Could I put it in my filter and then take it out after a month or two without hurting my own aquarium?

Thanks.

I always prime media for a new tank by putting it in existing tanks. If you can put it in a filter, that would be best. Second best would be to stick it on the end of the filter intake, IMO.
