Without anything producing nh3 in the QT it won’t build up the bacteria. If you keep at least 1 fish in the QT (after it cycles) or put a pinch of flake in every couple of days without any fish then it would work.

I agree about the bio-wheel. Since it gets water after it’s already been filtered you will rarely have to clean it off if ever.
