Seeding an algae sponge to set up quarantine tank?

Recommended Posts

I need to set up a new 10 gallon quarantine tank. I have a new sponge filter on order. While I wait for my equipment to arrive, can I sink an algae cleaning sponge (purchased from Aquarium Coop) in my fully cycled display tank? I would like to get a jump start on growing beneficial bacteria for the new quarantine tank. 

Thoughts? Ideas? How long does it take for a new sponge to become seeded?
