Please help....Is this aquarium-safe?

I picked up this sponge at walmart the other day to make a DIY sponge filter for my future shrimp tank. AutoShow SoftGrip Sponge: Automotive : Walmart.com However, I am starting to question whether or not it is aquarium safe......What do you guys think? I really don't want to lose shrimp due to a stupid thing like the sponge being non aquarium-safe.

in advance

I'd say no, it's probably been treated with something. It would probably be cheaper just to buy a sponge filter.

If your set on making one buy the sponge from a Petstore then your 100% sure. Shrimp are very sensitive.
