I had a similar experience with that seller. The balls arrived small, squished, and damp. I put them in the tank and they did fluff up a lot. The LONGEST length of each was 1" or 2.5cm, not the shortest length. They were closer to 1cm by 3cm in shape.
But, I was also charged nearly $4 shipping for less than 2oz in a polymailer, which I happen to know cost him under $2 to ship, since I ship in those a lot and I am only 200 miles from the shipper. AND my balls are all dying now! Less than 2 weeks later.
yes, I tested my water parameters. T he only one that was off was the temp, which I had at 86 while I was cycling the tank. So I moved them to a bowl in the window, pulled off the dead stuff to expose green algea, and they're still dying.
