I had heard that you are never to let sponges come in contact with air. They are one of the few things that you are supposed to keep submerged constantly.

i'm with electrikat, always been informed to never let them absorb air. However I am sure that this depends on the length of exposure.
FWIW [not saying you are wrong] but I thought I had a couple sponges on some of my lr, they turned out be be sea squirts!
