I will be attempting to make a carpet with dwarf grass. The tank is 75g a 72x18 how much is recommend to get the carpet going. Should I just buy small patches (2x2) or is recommended to buy a bunch of it?

Really depends on how patient you are. Dwarf Hair Grass requires quite a bit in the way of light, CO2, and nutrients to be successful and spread out. If you can wait, a few 2x2's will do you fine, if not though, it's going to take a LOT of DHG to carpet. I advise getting a pair of long handled stainless steel or plastic tweezers for planting or you'll need a toupee to replace all the hair you've torn out!

My uncle used to wear a rug when I was little. He used to take it off of his head and I thought it was a cat or a kitty as I used to call it at the time. LOL

I would go with the 2x2 patches, unless you want a kitty on your head...
