    It's me again what type of media do you have in your filter?

    You can rinse it in old tank water or dechlorinated water. Rinsing it in tap water will kill the bacteria.

    I've done just that and everything for my filter is fluval.

    Yeah as the guy above you said, rinse it in old tank water during a water change.
    And if there's multiple sponges don't replace all of them at once as its restart the cycle essentially
