I have a sponge filter that's been sitting in my garage for about a year. Before that it was sitting in stagnant water for a while, but it's all dry now. Would you say it's safe to use in a new tank? I presume any harmful bacteria would've died off by now.

You would probably be ok but don't really know, I would rinse it in hot water first and maybe let it soak to loosen up any crud, but than again they are pretty cheap.
