QT tank question

I just rebuilt a Penguin 170 filter (bio wheel and everything was in a storage box) which I want to use for a 10 gallon QT tank. I have the filter going right now in a square bucket and have added bacteria (stress zyme) to the bucket water to get the bio-wheel going--(bio-wheel was used before)
When I get the 10 gallon setup and ready to roll I plan on adding a few neons-or goldfish feeders to cycle the tank with the re-built filter. Am I helping the bio wheel before I do this using stress Zyme filtering a bucket? I guess right now I am just testing the filter, throwing in the bacteria was an experiment---Im going to check ammonia and nitrites of course. Has anyone else tried their filter in a bucket firs
