OK well it should have had ceramics, sponges etc too. The bacteria you had would have been in the wool/carbon, though they would struggle to hold enough long term, especially as wool needs replacing every month or so, but as they weren't reusable you're doing a fish in cycle now so check ammonia and nitrite at least daily and do a big enough water change to reduce back to 0.25ppm or less whenever they exceed that. The article I linked to in the previous post has full details of how to deal with a fish in cycle.
