2 golfballs? looks like a whole lot more...hope that grows out quick for you (so I can buy some).
The seller sent a good amount
just slightly more than two golfballs, just enough for this tank
it was however infested with some Spirogyra so ill have to pop an Amano or two in here later on when the tanks done cycling if it spreads.

Not really. A pair of kitchen scissors from kitchen aid did the job
easy to eye how much I needed to cut out too. It'll be a good amount of time before everything fills in since there's no ferts or CO2 I'm estimating about 3 months? That's assuming that all goes well.
nice work! i wouldnt have the patience to tie all that fissidens to the mesh.
when i do it i usually just take a nice clump and tie it down.
I've tied plenty of fissidens so I don't mind. It gets quicker and quicker the more experience you have. A pair of tweezers is all I needed to spread the moss evenly. Plopping down a clump may give you denser growth but it wastes a lot of moss as well IMO and I needed to cover as much surface as I could so I used the least I could without using not enough that it would make holes in the substrate as some of moss will simply die off and not send out new fronds. Only time will tell.
Very cool! I'm totally inspired to do something similar in my BKK tank.
You won't want to use Seiryu stones through as they raise your GH and pH. This could probably be solved if you had ADA Africana that buffers the pH extremely low along with a few calculations as to how fast the stones raise your GH which would dictate how often you would have to change out water with RO to bring down the hardness of water.
