In that case, all you need is another piece of sponge, any brand, and cut it to the same size and shape as the carbon sponge. I would look for a cheap filter sponge so that it will be the right type of sponge. A bath sponge isn't, for example. (Some sponges are designed to hold water, others to allow water to run through them. Obviously filter sponges need to be the kind that let water run trough  ;D )

It is a carbon impregnated sponge you can have a look at the filter here.

What is the carbon? It could be a bag of granules, a carbon impregnated sponge or a cartridge (a flat bag of carbon held on a plastic frame). What to replace it with depends on what shape it is.

Yes, but a short bath should be OK. That's why you need to keep an eye on the fish while it is in the bath.

That's longer than some of mine have lasted  :-\ I do wonder if they are becoming inbred these days.

Try the epsom salts. Even if that doesn't work, you will have tried your best for the cory.
