Macro algea

So I added macro algae to my sump. My question is how much is a good amount I bought one bunch. I have a 75 gallon tank and a 30 gallon sump.

I asked the same question a while ago and was told to just get one baseball size clump of Cheato and it will grow. I found one and have it in my old QT tank with some live rock and sand and a light, it has probably grown an inch in about a month and that's with super low flow and low nitrates.
