You can treat anubias with un-treated tap water as well. No issue there and I would actually do it for another day or two before you add it to the tank.
If it were me I'd try to remove the spongy material if possible, if not then it should be fine to plant like that.
now for the tricky part, Only the roots of the anubias can be planted. This plant is actually supposed to be tied to driftwood or lava rock or some other decoration. BUT it is okay to plant as long as you only have the roots covered. The rhizome is the part that connects all the leaves together, that has got to be above the gravel able to see the light or else the plant will rot away.
