His QT will cycle if he doesn't take media that's established bacteria from his DT. The water itself has nothing to do with it cycling. The only way to be ready for this would have been to run the biowheel on his DT for a while to build up bacteria in it, then transfer it to the QT.

If you use a new filter and DT tank water, why would it cycle? Had my 10g QT set up this way and never had a spike or death. Was I just lucky?

The water itself doesn't contain the bacteria. Your LR, LS, and any filter media you have in the tank does. Therefore, just bringing water from the DT to another tank doesn't mean you won't cycle.
