Seeding a sponge filter?

Should I just put this in my refugium and leave it there?
It's going to be for a quarantine tank.
About how long before it's good to go to work in qt?

You can put it in your skimmer area preferably. Leave it there for at least a few weeks. In the future, have two sponges.... One for the QT and one in your sump. That way you just switch them back and forth. But, when you take it out of QT, rinse it out and let it dry out for a day or two before putting it back into your sump (safety precaution). You should always keep one in your sump too for emergencies.

Thanks Mike
I don't a have a sump, just a hob skimmer and refugium. I'll just put one in each then.

You can rinse out meds this way without having any risk of damaging your reef?
