Sponge for cleaning aquarium stuff

So about 2 years ago I got a little square sponge that ive been using to clean all my aquarium stuff since then. Well its starting to get old and nasty finally so I was looking to buy another one. The only problem is I cant remember where I purchased this sponge. It may have been at a pet store like petland or petco, but I can absolutely not find anything that resembles anything like it online.

Anyone have any ideas a brand of sponge I can get to replace my sponge, and where to get it?

The sponge I have is about 2" x 2". Had a yellow soft side and a thinner blue scrub side. I thought it was a major aquarium brand like fluval for some reason. But no matter what I search on anyway website, I cant find anything like it.

Here are pictures of said sponge for reference of what im looking for...

Not quite the same...but give the magic eraser a try.

Their fairly inexpensive and you can cut them into smaller pieces to make them last longer.

Good for cleaning glass, overflow grates, power heads etc...And throw it away after use.

I have something very similar I bought from petland, but it was a glass cleaner at first until the sponge fell off the stick. Then I used it for the same thing you did.
