I agree, definitely gotta move some water around in there. It's not even in the pockets its sitting in the open. Personally I feel hob filters just don't work a the sole filter in a planted tank. Especially when there is rock, wood or hills in the hardscape. I bet you could find a small canister on craigslist for cheap a 105 would get the water moving quite well in a 10. But then again canisters in that size range can be bought new for less than 75 bucks. If it were my tank is go for a filter upgrade to a canister before putting a powerhead in keeps the equipment outside the tank and will provide better circulation and filtration at the same time.
