I know what you mean by the soap looking bubbles coming out of your airstone and i think thats why they say you should soak it for an hour before putting it in the tank and running it, but i dont think its anything to worry about as i did the same thing when i first started and all i did was a water change, no biggie

When in doubt, do a water change!

for scrubbing, I use a green plastic pot scrubbie from teh dollar store 6 to a pack. I also cut them and use them as prefilters and to hold Phosban in the filter. good things they are.

Be careful using dish sponges in the tank. Check the packaging for a warning. Lots of them are treated to keep them moist in the package, and whatever it is that they use shouldn't be introduced to your tank. i know the yellow sponges with the green scrubby part that I buy (I can't remember the brand) shouldn't be used in the tank, and they always feel damp when I take them out.
