Marine glass sponge that builds silica skeletons (wikipedia.org)

Could you grow sponges on the moon to build glass structures in space? Ie so the marine glass sponge consume silica from the moon surface? Thinking in terms of terraforming.

The sponge would also need to be able to survive the cold of space and heat of the sun.

Wouldn't you need water for that?
