Advice wanted on setting up a fresh tank

Hi,
Been a while since I was in here ...
Looking for advice on best way to set up my daughter's new tank.
She had an aqua one 28l and after some issues with the light we have replaced it with this one

 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Small-Nano-Aquarium-Fish-Tank-Coldwater-Tropical-LED-Lighting-7-14-29-Litres/401209909447?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=670791096535&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

 Since her last fish died a few weeks ago we kept the tank running and didn't over clean it or the filter. Is there likely to be any functional bacteria left? I was wondering if we would be able to run the old filter in the new tank or add the filter media to the new filter, however, it has a filter system I am unfamiliar with an in hood filter system. 

Also wondering if bioballs work ....

Just looking for best way to speed up cycling.
Last time I partly fishless cycled but only really got anywhere when changed to fish in cycling.

All advice welcome. Ps I'm an established fish keeper, just not done a new set up in years.
