I had that growing in a previous batch of HC. It's just some sort of terrestrial moss and will all die off when submerged in water. For now, just pull as much out as you can before planting.

The difference this time was simply because I had so much HC that I filled the tank almost to the brim right off the bat. In the Mini-L, I only started with 4 pots IIRC, so there were more...

Instead of slate, I'd look into stainless steel mesh. The moss will fill in faster to make the carpet.

But yikes at the price. The LFS here has them for $3 each and $1-2 on sale.

If you can get it for $6, then definitely go for it.
