If it took ten days I doubt the wonder bottle did anything at all. My QT tank cycled in 48 hours with a seeded sponge filter and used biomax pellets.

Well, the sponge filter was just from my betta tank which only houses my one betta. I don't really know how much bacteria could build up with the amount of ammonia that one betta produces. Also, I didn't have the filter yet so I just sort of stuck it on the bottom of the tank. So, I really can't tell for sure, but I'm sure it didn't hurt.

It might not have hurt but if it didn't help its just money down the drain. If your filter was supporting a betta then it should have been good and seeded. The real struggle is in getting the colonies up to a size to handle a fishes waste output, once its there a colony can double in size in short order to deal with a larger fish load.
